Indiana University (IU) Media School - High School Journalism Institute (HSJI)
Grants to USA, Canada, and International high school journalism teachers to subsidize the cost of attending teacher workshops at an American university. Priority is given to applicants who have little journalism teaching experience. Grant recipients are expected to return to journalism teaching in the fall.
Awardees will have the opportunity to study at Indiana University in Bloomington this summer. Funds are applied to the tuition bill of workshop participants.

The IU Media School plans to award several grants for high school teachers.
Grant amounts will be relative to the number of graduate credit hours taken. For example, those taking three credits may apply for a $900 grant and those taking two credits may apply for a $600 grant.
The grants are intended for teachers who currently have journalism teaching or advising responsibilities or who are preparing for those responsibilities.
Grants also are available for high school journalism teachers and advisers who enroll in the summer practicum, a customized professional development opportunity that meets during student workshops in July. Teachers who receive a grant and successfully complete the practicum will be reimbursed their $250 registration fee.
To apply for a grant, mail a letter to Teresa White or complete the online form no later than May 1, 2018.
Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision in early May.
