Student Teaching Stipend for High-Needs Fields

The Student Teaching Stipend is for minority students who plan to teach in 'high-need' fields, which means a teaching specialty that affects the economic vitality of Indiana and in which there is a shortage of candidates. The Commission will determine which specialties are considered 'high-need fields,' but they will likely include areas of STEM (e.g. math, science, physics). Special education is included through statutory language. The student must show that he/she will engage in student teaching during the upcoming academic term. The stipend will be a maximum of $5000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale) or $4000 (if the student has a GPA of at least 3.0 and less than 3.5 on a 4.0 scale).
