Growing Tomorrow's STEM Teachers (GTST) Grant Program

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Teacher Recruitment Grant

IU Southeast School of Education was awarded a $240,000 two-year grant by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to enhance recruitment, preparation and education of highly qualified pre-service and in-service STEM teachers in Indiana school corporations. The GTST Grant:

  • awards 12 graduate credits, for free, to 20 candidates enrolled in either IU Southeast’s Master of Science in Secondary Education or the Advance to Teaching post-baccalaureate program in a STEM area. Additional support money is available for travel, conferences, release time, materials, and dependent care. Candidates can obtain their master’s or initial teaching license while still working.
  • offers professional development workshops and seminars for K-12 teachers that has direct relevance to all STEM teachers’ classrooms.
  • updates current Dual-Credit high school teachers who do not meet the new Indiana’s Higher Learning Commission requirements to qualify for the new requirements through a Master of Secondary Education program with a concentration in a STEM content.
  • develops future Dual-Credit high school teachers that will be attuned to State requirements through a Master of Secondary Education program with a concentration in a STEM content area with 18 hours in content and 18 hours in content pedagogy.
  • recruits new, highly-qualified post-baccalaureate candidates into an initial teaching license in secondary education STEM areas through a State-approved Advance to Teaching licensure pathway.
  • provides long-term mentoring from education, natural science and industry personnel to assist these candidates to stay in the classroom.
