21st Century Scholarships
With the rising cost of tuition, the 21st Century Scholarship is a great opportunity for young Hoosiers to afford college and achieve their career goals. The scholarship provides up to four years of undergraduate tuition at public colleges or universities in Indiana. Students in seventh or eighth grades must apply before June 30. Families must meet certain income eligibility guidelines and requirements to qualify for the scholarship. Scholars must also maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average, graduate with a high school diploma, and pledge to not use illegal drugs or alcohol, or commit any crimes. Hoosier parents should not let this opportunity pass by. All applications must be received by June 30 of a student’s eighth grade year, but there are certain exceptions for those in foster care.
