This page is dedicated to the STEM Mentoring Grant, funded by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. This grant supports mentors and mentees in 12 school districts in Indiana.
With our second semester of 2019-20 disrupted by Covid-19, we have adjusted our requirements for the grant.
If you have made videos of your classroom, shared them with your mentor and reflected on them you have met the requirements of the grant. Please make sure your mentor submits a Mentor Record of Action (see below for all forms and instructions).
If you have not made videos of your classroom, you can meet the requirements of the grant by attending three webinars or watching the recording and completing the survey. See below for the webinar schedule and links.
