Hoosier STEM Fellowship

The Hoosier STEM Academy has a grant from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education that will support a teaching Fellows program, similar to the one that was run for several years in the state of Indiana, during the partnership with the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. We still have a few spaces for students at Valparaiso, Purdue, IUPUI and Ball State University. This is a one-year master’s degree program with certification to teach a science or mathematics discipline at the high school or middle school level. The program starts this summer and ends next summer. The stipend is $30,000 for each student participant. We are looking for good students who think they would like to teach. After they complete the master’s degree, the Fellows will teach for 3 years as the teacher of record in an Indiana school district that includes a population of high needs students.

We are hoping to find students—either those completing their bachelor’s degree, or current or graduating grad students--who can begin the program this summer. Potential Fellows can contact Kizmin Jones, kmjones4@bsu.edu, Director of the Hoosier STEM Academy, or they can complete the preliminary application here. The extended deadline is May 15, 2018.
