Professional Development Grant

The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics is dedicated to the on-going professional development of its members.  We desire to help in the continuing development of teachers, particularly where local funds are insufficient.  Therefore, the ICTM has set aside up to $2000 in grants to assist with a professional development activity. Proposals must be submitted by February 1 and July 1 each year

Below are additional grant guidelines.

  • Involvement of at least five math teachers, all currently teaching in an Indiana grades K-12 school with at least one teacher a confirmed current member of the ICTM. 

  • A detailed budget is required.  

    1. Allowed expenses for the funds: speaker fees, purchase of books or training materials, or  conference registration fees. 
    2. Expenses not allowed are travel expenses, teacher stipends, or substitute pay.  
  • The school or corporation must support the grant by contributing a minimum of $100 directly to the project or paying a minimum of $300 in related expenses not covered by grant funds.

    Preservice Teacher Scholarship

    The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics will award up to three $1,000 scholarships to college or university students in Indiana working towards a teaching certificate in a field that includes the teaching of mathematics in elementary, middle or high school.  Individuals who have taught professionally are not eligible for these scholarships. Applications must be submitted by May 15 each year. Scholarships are awarded in late July and payment is made to the college or university by August. (Please note colleges and universities receive the award and not the individual.)  Recipients of the scholarship must attend a university or college in the school year immediately following the July award.

    In my future classroom, I want to encourage collaborative learning and engagement. It is my goal to create a welcoming classroom environment, where students feel comfortable expressing their ideas, asking questions, and learning from their mistakes.

    The end goal I have for my students is that they will walk away from my class, with not only an appreciation for the beauty that lies in math and greater mathematical knowledge, but also virtues that can carry into other aspects of their lives.”

    Anticipated Graduation in May 2022

    By engaging students in creative mathematics, all students, those who already have a love for the subject and those who may not, will be able to find something that fascinates them. I am dedicated to working alongside each and every student to find what sparks their interest and how we can use that to learn math; I believe every student is a mathematician and once they become more confident, the growth and opportunities that will occur are endless.”
