Student Teaching Stipend extension

Interested students have until Jan. 31, 2019  

Hoosier students participating in a student teaching or school administration internship now have until Jan. 31, 2019, to apply for the Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities and the Student Teaching Stipend for High-Need Fields. Each stipend provides up to $4,000 during the semester in which the student teaches or interns.

“We know that quality teacher preparation is crucial to student success, and student teaching is one of the best ways for aspiring teachers to get hands-on experience in a classroom,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “By alleviating some of the financial stress that comes with balancing work, school and the student teaching requirements, we hope to attract and retain more teachers of color and teachers specializing in high-need fields.”

To qualify for the Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities, students must be a minority—Black or Hispanic—participating in a student teaching or school administration internship. In addition, students must maintain a cumulative GPA upon entering student teaching that is required by their institution and agree in writing to apply for a teaching position at an accredited school in Indiana following graduation and, if hired, teach for at least three years.

To qualify for the Student Teaching Stipend for High-Need Fields, students must be enrolled in a course of study that would enable the student to teach in a “high-need” field—special education or middle or high school level math or science. Participating students must also agree in writing to apply for a teaching position at an accredited school in Indiana following graduation and, if hired, teach for at least three years.

Interested students should submit a complete and corrected FAFSA as well as an online application at ScholarTrack.IN.gov by Jan. 31, 2019.
