Indiana State University is committed to providing Twenty-first Century Scholars the resources they need to graduate on-time with a degree and an experience that will prepare them for a successful future. To achieve this goal, the Twenty-first Century Scholars Office provides support to Scholars in the following areas: community service opportunities, student events, and mentoring. Student events include financial aid workshops and study break events. Through mentoring, students receive personal guidance to help them achieve their academic goals.
This office also advises the Scholar-led
student organization, ScholarCorps, which Scholars are encouraged to
participate in. All Scholars are members and may attend any of our
events. Membership provides students the opportunities to meet other
Scholars and discuss the many opportunities available on campus
