Active Teacher Grants


Helping teachers and their classrooms

We understand the importance of helping teachers fulfill their classroom missions. That is why we provide assistance through the generosity of our members and partners.

About the grants

  • This program provides one-time grants to active educators who foster creativity in students.
  • A maximum of $500 will be awarded per grant. Each IRTA area may award no more than $1000 total funds per grant cycle. 
  • These special grants will provide additional funds to public school educators (Pre-K through 12) so that their students will have the means to participate in special projects. Applicants must be Teacher Retirement Fund (TRF) members. 
  • Funds may be appropriated in the areas of resources, leadership, research, or materials used by an active Indiana public school educator. Winners may apply another year with a different idea.
  • The annual applications window spans from August 15 to September 30 each year. All materials must be electronically received or postmarked by September 30 to be considered.
