The 21st Century Scholars Program was created to encourage 7th and 8th grade students from Indiana to graduate high
school and attend college. Students must sign a pledge to remain drug-free throughout the course of their high school and college career.
To be eligible, the student must:
Be enrolled in 12 credit hours of course instruction on the 28th day of class, including summer.
Be working toward his or her first bachelor's degree.
Have made any FAFSA corrections, such as signatures, by May 15th.
In order to receive the award for subsequent terms, students must do the following:
Complete 30 credit hours per academic year (Fall, Spring, and Summer);
File the FAFSA on time every year after completing high school, even if not enrolling in college;
Graduate from college within 8 years of completing high school;
Fulfill the requirements of the 21st Century Scholars pledge, which promises to remain drug and alcohol-free.
Notification and Disbursement
If eligible, the 21st Century Scholars Grant will be listed on the student's award notification as well as posted
to the student's MyISU Portal account. Funds are applied directly to
the student's ISU account approximately ten days before the start of the applicable semester.
