About the Program
Indiana’s 21st Century Scholarship was established in 1990 to ensure that every Hoosier student can afford the opportunity provided by a college degree.
You must have enrolled in for the scholarship in 7th or 8th grade. In high school, you are connected to programs and resources to help you plan, prepare and pay for college by completing the Scholar Success Program (SSP).
Once you fulfill your SSP requirements and graduate with an Indiana Core 40 high school diploma, four years of tuition to an Indiana school will be paid for by the scholarship.
