21st Century Scholars

Attention 7th and 8th grade parents – your child may be eligible for a college scholarship. Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars Program offers income-eligible Hoosier students up to four years of paid tuition at an eligible Indiana college or university after they graduate from high school. In middle school and high school, Scholars are connected to programs and resources to help them plan, prepare, and pay for college. Once in college, Scholars receive support to complete their college degrees and connect to career opportunities. 7th and 8th grade Indiana students whose families meet income eligibility guidelines can apply to become a 21st Century Scholar. Applications must be received by June 30 of the student’s 8th grade year. Scholars must complete the Scholars Pledge and meet the expectations of the Scholar Success Program throughout high school and college. For more information please call 1.888.528.4719 or send an email to Scholars@che.in.gov.
