PROGRAM DETAILS AND REQUIREMENTS

Program Details

The Mind Trust operates three programs that help grow high quality public schools in Indianapolis. Through our nationally unique Innovation School Fellowship, we select talented leaders to start schools, called Innovation Network Schools, within Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS), and provide these leaders the critical planning time, expert counsel and support needed for success. Through our Charter School Incubator, we also help to launch or expand excellent public charter schools, which have the same autonomy as Innovation Network Schools but operate independently of the school district. And through our Education Entrepreneur Fellowship we select talented leaders with the vision and skill set to launch high quality non-profit education organizations and provide them the time and support needed to expertly launch those organizations. Education Entrepreneur Fellowship initiatives include high quality public schools and non-profit organizations that address challenges facing those schools, such as teacher retention and summer-learning loss among economically disadvantaged students.
