The extent and nature of mentoring determines the effectiveness and success of any educational program. A multi-faceted mentoring scheme has been designed for the Robert Noyce Mathematics Teacher Scholarship Program at Texas A&M International University, Laredo, TX. As part of the scholarship, students receive additional mentoring from university faculty and other professionals in the field. This paper will outline this mentoring scheme as well as examine its preliminary effectiveness.
