Lilly Endowment Invites Proposals for 2019 Teacher Creativity Fellowships

The has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2019 Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program.

The annual fellowship enables educators to pursue their dreams and passions, explore new areas of interest, and develop new and existing talents. Renewal times are not vacations but opportunities for intentional exploration and reflection that will result in renewed energy, enthusiasm, and creativity in teachers and thereby in classrooms and schools.

For 2019 fellowships, the endowment will offer up to a hundred $12,000 grants to K-12 public and private school educators (including teachers, school counselors, principals, assistant principals, and media specialists) in Indiana for projects of the grant recipient’s choice. Collaborative proposals are also encouraged.

To be eligible, applicants must have held a position as a teacher, school counselor, principal, assistant principal, or media specialist since at least the fall of 2016; be currently employed full time; and be Indiana-certified in grades K-12.
