What is the 21st Century Scholarship?
Earning the 21st Century Scholarship provides students up to four years of undergraduate tuition* at any participating public college or university in Indiana. If you attend a private college, the state will award an amount comparable to that of a four-year public college. If you attend a participating proprietary (for-profit) school, the state will award a tuition scholarship equal to that of Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana.The scholarship amount may be reduced depending on the availability of funds and the availability of the student’s family to contribute to college.

As a 21st Century Scholar, not only do you earn a scholarship, you get step-by-step help to make sure you succeed in college. Plus, once you get to college, 21st Century Scholars receive support through degree completion.
