Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars is a needs- and performance-based program that provides students the opportunity to earn up to a four-year scholarship at an Indiana college or university. Hoosier students who meet income criteria can enroll during their 7th- or 8th-grade year of middle school. Students commit to maintaining academic success, remaining drug and alcohol free, and completing college-preparation activities. Scholars are provided resources and assistance to help them plan and prepare for college and pay for expenses not covered by their scholarship. All students should apply weather they are eligible now or not. We cannot predict the future, and a student may become eligible when it comes time to use the scholarship; However, if the student did not complete the application in 7th or 8th grade, they will not be able to apply for the scholarship later on.
