Jacobs Award application for the 2013-2014 school year is open until July 15, 2013. Learn more!
The Jacobs Educator Award is supported by the Barbara B. Jacobs Chair in Education and Technology to recognize K-12 teachers across the United States who are using technology to support innovative inquiry-based teaching and learning activities in their classrooms.
Each year, we select a small group of exceptional teachers from any grade level or content area who are at the cutting edge of integrating digital technologies into their instruction.
The Jacobs Educator Award honors outstanding technology-using K-12 teachers, but it is much more than a “teacher of the year” award. Jacobs Educators are part of a nation-wide community of highly successful teachers who work with the world renowned education faculty at the School of Education at Indiana University Bloomington in a variety of capacities, including teaching, research, and special projects and events.
Additionally, each selected Jacobs Educator will receive:
- $1500 stipend at the end of their one-year appointment,
- $1000 to be used to purchase technology resources to support their teaching,
- funds to support travel to Indiana University in order to participate in periodic events throughout the year.
If you are a K-12 educator in the United States who has taught for at least five years, you are eligible for the Jacobs Educator Award. Learn more about the application requirements.
We look forward to receiving your application!
