This year marks Lilly Endowment’s 34th round of its Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program (TCFP). The Teacher Creativity fellowship is one of the Endowment’s longest standing programs and began as a way to help Indiana elementary and secondary educators renew their commitment to teaching.

We are aware that educators are facing mounting and evolving challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Especially during this difficult time, the TCFP renewal program is continuing to support educators by funding proposals for new experiences, exploration and reflection. The Endowment has made grants to 101 Indiana educators in 2021. Learn more about this year’s fellows and their plans for renewal here.
