Teaching Scholarships

Here are some of the Teaching scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.

Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities

The State's biennial budget was passed by the Indiana General Assembly, and one of the provisions in the budget is to create new student teacher stipend programs for students. This program is for minority students (defined as black and Hispanic individuals) who plan to teach. An individual may apply for this stipend if the individual: is a minority student; will participate in student teaching as part of the student's degree requirements; has earned a cumulative grade point average upon entering student teaching of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent as determined by the eligible institution; and meets any other minimum criteria established by the Commission. The student must show that he/she will engage in student teaching during the upcoming academic term. The stipend will be a maximum of $5,000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale) or $4,000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.0 and less than 3.5 on a 4.0 scale). The actual amount of the stipend will depend on the number of eligible applicants. FAFSA must be filed before a student can complete the online stipend application. It takes 5 to 7 business days from filing for FAFSA data to be available in the state's system. Therefore, the FAFSA must be filed in time for the student to meet the application deadline. Stipends will be awarded AFTER the application deadlines for each term.

Student Teaching Stipend for High-Needs Fields

The State's biennial budget was passed by the Indiana General Assembly, and one of the provisions in the budget is to create new student teacher stipend programs for students. This program is for students who plan to teach in "high-need" fields, which means a teaching specialty that affects the economic vitality of Indiana and in which there is a shortage of candidates. The Commission has determined which specialties are considered “high-need fields.” The Commission has defined high-need fields as middle or high school level math or science. Special education is included through statutory language. An individual may apply for a stipend if the individual: is a student who is enrolled in a course of study that would enable the student, upon graduation, to teach in an accredited school in Indiana in: special education; or a high-need field; will participate in student teaching as part of the student's degree requirements; has earned a cumulative grade point average upon entering 1 student teaching of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent as determined by the eligible institution; and meets any other minimum criteria established by the Commission. The student must show that he/she will engage in student teaching during the upcoming academic term. The stipend will be a maximum of $5,000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale) or $4,000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.0 and less than 3.5 on a 4.0 scale). The actual amount of the stipend will depend on the number of eligible applicants. FAFSA must be filed before a student can complete the online stipend application. It takes 5 to 7 business days from filing for FAFSA data to be available in the state's system. Therefore, the FAFSA must be filed in time for the student to meet the application deadline. Stipends will be awarded AFTER the application deadlines for each term.
