Current 4th and 5th grade students may qualify for up to $1,000 in grant funding. Families can see if they are eligible, view funds, and schedule tutoring vendors at an online platform.
For School Leaders and Teachers
The REV Fellowship is a three-year fellowship for emerging leaders who are eager to expand their impact on our city’s students. To be eligible for the REV Fellowship, candidates must be working in an Indianapolis charter or innovation school and commit to staying at their school for three years while participating in the fellowship. REV Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend for program participation. This stipend is contingent upon a fellow remaining at their school throughout the fellowship.
Become an Indiana Learns Champion School or Champion Plus School
Indiana Learns is a statewide grant program supporting reading and math growth for eligible young Hoosiers by funding tutoring in a variety of settings. Indiana Learns Champion Schools are schools with families that are actively using Indiana Learns accounts to strengthen their student’s skill level in Math and Reading. Champion Schools may offer on-site math and english/language arts engagement opportunities—outside of school hours—to qualifying students. Schools can work with the eligible population to leverage the funds to support the delivery of qualified expenses.
Champion Plus Schools have all the characteristics of Champion Schools, PLUS they choose to match funds of $250 for eligible students. Indiana Learns will match the funds with an additional $250 for eligible students; totaling $1,000 per eligible student. These funds can be used on qualified expenses.
