Due to the tremendous demand for courses offered in Spring and Summer 2016, STEM Teach II funds have been depleted much sooner than anticipated. Once all summer semester payments are finalized, ICI will review the remaining budget and determine if funds will be available to offer a limited number of courses during the 2016-17 academic year. ICI will also be communicating with legislative leaders about renewal of this grant fund during the 2017 budget session. Please sign up to receive STEM Teach II updates and news by clicking here.
The goal of STEM Teach II is to increase the number of highly-qualified teachers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in Indiana and to help high school teachers of dual credit courses meet new credentialing requirements. To achieve that goal, STEM Teach has brought together a group of private colleges and universities to offer STEM courses and workshops to K-12 teachers.
Classes are free for participating teachers! Tuition is waived and participants will receive completion awards for each successfully completed course or workshop – $500 for a graduate or undergraduate course, $250 for a 5-day workshop, $500 for a 10-day workshop. Textbooks or classroom materials will be covered by a stipend to the participating teacher or host institution. Due to limited funding, teachers may only enroll in a maximum of two courses per semester.
Registration for STEM Teach II Offerings Is Closed.

STEM Teach is a project of the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). ICI contracted with the Center for Excellence in Leadership of Learning (CELL) at the University of Indianapolis for specific development as well as organizational and administrative support for the grant. It is funded through the Indiana STEM Teacher Recruitment Fund, established by the Indiana General Assembly and administered by the Indiana Commission of Higher Education.
