Twenty-first Century Scholar Program Now Enrolling

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

The Twenty-first Century Scholar Program provides college tuition to qualified students at an eligible Indiana college or university.

Students enroll in the seventh and eighth grades and take a pledge of good citizenship. Support services such as financial aid workshops and college visits are offered to scholars and parents throughout the students’ middle and high school years.

Upon completion of the Scholars Pledge, students are awarded college tuition to eligible Indiana institutions of higher learning.

To be eligible for the Twenty-first Century Scholars Program, students must:

• Be a resident of Indiana as an applicant and award recipient (determined by residency of parent/legal guardian) U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen

• Be enrolled in the seventh or eighth grade at a public school, charter school, freeway school, or other Indiana school accredited (or seeking accreditation) through Performance Based Accreditation (PBA) by the Indiana Department of Education

• Meet income requirements or be a ward of the court (foster child)

• Make a commitment to fulfill the Scholars’ Pledge that states they will stay alcohol, drug, and crime-free.

Applications are available through middle school counselors or the Twenty-first Century Scholars office on ISU’s campus. Call 812-237-3627 or 1-888-288-1606 for an application.
