The Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program is one of the Endowment’s longest standing programs and began as a way to help Indiana public school teachers renew their commitment to teaching. Since it began in 1987, the program has expanded its eligibility to teachers in private and parochial schools, to principals and assistant principals, and to school counselors and media specialists. The commitment behind this competitive program is to recognize, re-energize and support Indiana educators.

This fellowship enables educators to pursue their dreams and passions, explore new areas of interest, plus expand and develop new and existing talents. Renewal times are not vacations but opportunities for intentional exploration and reflection that will result in renewed energy, enthusiasm and creativity in teachers and thereby in classrooms and schools. We believe that thousands of Indiana students have benefited from their teachers’ participation in this program.


Indiana’s public and private school educators serving K-12 students who have held a full-time position as a teacher, school counselor, principal, assistant principal or media specialist since at least Fall 2016 are eligible to apply. Applicants must be Indiana-certified in grades K-12
