Our local chapters carry out our mission of volunteering for communities and advancing local education initiatives.
Support our future educators
What better way to perpetually advance Indiana's education of young people than to develop and support more great teachers.
Each year, IRTF awards at most 10 scholarships (one in each Area) to help promote our profession and assist college students who have a passion for the classroom.
Scholarships are awarded to juniors or seniors in an Indiana college or university who are in a program leading to a degree in education.
We promote the scholarships in Indiana's institutions of higher learning, but we also encourage our local chapters to promote applicants. Scholarships are awarded by our IRTF Scholarship Committee.
