IKEEP offers a loan-for-service. This means you pay back the loan by teaching in a school with a significant Native American student population on a month-to-month basis of services received from IKEEP (about 22 months of teaching). If you are unable to complete work-related payback, you must pay back the federal government the cash equivalent of services received.

Upon becoming certified to teach, IKEEP will help you seek placement in a school with a significant population of Native American students to begin your payback through teaching service. IKEEP will support you for two years of induction services, meaning IKEEP will fund, during your first two years of teaching:

  • mentoring
  • teaching resources
  • additional support networks

The classes, workshops, mentorship and community offered through IKEEP strive to build and empower your capacity to be a culturally responsive Indigenous educator. You will earn a teaching certification, but beyond that, you will be prepared to sustain and revitalize Indigenous ways of knowing in the classroom and to meet the unique needs of Native learners.
