In spring 2022, Lilly Endowment launched the 36th round of its Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program (TCFP). This program supports educators throughout Indiana by providing resources for them to take time for meaningful renewal. The Endowment believes that through new experiences, exploration and reflection educators can generate renewed energy in their careers, innovative approaches to teaching and educational leadership, and thoughtful ways to encourage students’ creative thinking.

The application period to submit proposals for 2023 fellowships is now closed. 


Full-time education professionals in the following areas who have daily face-to-face interaction with students in Indiana’s public, private and charter schools are eligible to apply:

  • K-12 classroom teachers of all subjects
  • Principals and assistant principals
  • Librarians and media specialists
  • School counselors
  • School social workers
  • Instructional coaches
