Indianapolis Teaching Fellows is an opportunity for individuals from all disciplines and backgrounds to become certified teachers in two years while teaching in one of 45 partner schools, which includes Indianapolis Public Schools. Fellows participate in an extensive six-week summer training and receive continued training and coaching through their first two years of teaching.
This is an excellent opportunity for any seniors (or alums) who are interested in applying the skills they learned through their major to the education field (a background in education is not required).

The Professional Master’s Program (PMP) in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering (CHE) at Purdue University is a 12-16 month long, non-thesis, coursework-based Master’s program that prepares students for leadership and business roles in industry and government sectors through a combination of advance engineering and business courses.
Students also gain professional experience during the 12-week long summer capstone program, wherein students work on open-ended problems as part of an industry-based with one of our industry partners or an academic-based capstone project with one of our engineering faculty.
The program coursework is tailored to the career goals and backgrounds of its students. Students from non-chemical engineering backgrounds, such as Chemistry, will take three additional foundational Chemical Engineering courses in Engineering Calculations, Separation Processes, and Reaction Engineering to help prepare them for their graduate-level Chemical Engineering coursework. These pre-requisite courses can be taken concurrently with the rest of the PMP coursework so that their program completion is only delayed by one semester.
The program is currently accepting applications for both Spring and Fall 2021 and GRE score requirements have been waived for these applicants due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, international students receiving a degree from a U.S. institution do not need to submit English Proficiency scores, such as TOEFL or IELTS scores.

Historically, high-need students in Indianapolis have not had equal access to an education that adequately prepares them for college and career. Indianapolis Teaching Fellows trains recent college graduates to become exceptional certified teachers in high-need subject areas. The fast-paced summer training program focuses on the essential skills that teachers need most to start strong. Fellows will repeatedly practice foundational classroom management and instructional techniques, receive direct feedback from skilled coaches, and pass a series of evaluations to be eligible to start teaching in the fall. More information can be found at their website.
