Financial Information for ICI Member & Public Institutions

All funds will be sent directly to the business office of each institution, and the institution will decide how the funds are distributed.

ICI member and public institutions in Indiana are eligible to submit proposals to offer graduate and undergraduate courses as well as regional workshops. Campuses were encouraged to promote collaboration within departments for one submission; therefore, only one proposal per discipline from each campus was considered. Institutions that have not received funding through the Indiana STEM Teacher Recruitment Fund for similar purposes (credentialing dual-credit teachers in STEM fields) are given priority consideration in order to avoid duplication of efforts and to serve a wider range and larger number of teachers.

Tuition, books, and materials for these courses are offered at no cost to teachers employed at public including charter schools in Indiana by utilizing funds available through the STEM Teacher Recruitment Fund to pay the colleges and universities for tuition, books and materials. Courses will be offered for a total of six semesters to include Spring 2020, Summer I 2020, Summer II 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer I 2021 and possibly Summer II 2021 if funding allows.
