21st Century Scholars

21st Century Scholars is an Indiana Commission for Higher Education program. Students earning the 21st Century Scholarship receive up to four years of undergraduate tuition at any participating public college or university in Indiana.

Earning the Scholarship

In addition to the scholarship, you also receive step-by-step guidance to help make sure you succeed in college and support to finish your degree. Visit the 21st Century Scholars website to enroll and get started on your path to higher education.

To earn the scholarship:

  • Perform Academically. All Scholars must earn a cumulative (overall) high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. 
  • Complete the Scholar Success Program. Students must complete the Scholar Success Program during each grade level (starting in the seventh grade). Students will develop the skills needed to be college-ready and understand what it takes to pay for college.
  • Graduate with a High School Diploma. Strive for the highest-level diploma you think you can earn—don’t be afraid to push yourself!
