REV Fellowship

The REV Fellowship is a three-year fellowship for emerging leaders who are eager to expand their impact on our city’s students. This opportunity is designed for people who hold roles like Director of Special Education, Assistant Principal, Multilingual Learners Coordinator, or Dean of Culture are likely a good fit for this fellowship opportunity. 

School Fellowship

Through this nationally-unique, paid fellowship, exceptional educators with at least 5-7 years of school leadership experience have the opportunity to spend one to two years preparing to lead a new public school in Indianapolis.

Fellows receive personalized coaching, resources, and training throughout the program, as well as ongoing support once schools are launched. Since 2013, The Mind Trust’s Fellows have launched 27 charter and innovation schools in Indianapolis.

Education Entrepreneur Fellowship

The Education Entrepreneur Fellowship funds leaders who will launch a nonprofit organization aimed at addressing specific barriers in our education system that impact students and families. Fellows receive full funding for one to two years, as well as ongoing resources and support. Previously successful ventures have impacted teacher retention, parent advocacy, and created a unified enrollment system.
