Indiana’s colleges support Scholars in a variety of important ways, from special tours and visit days for middle school and high school Scholars to academic support services and financial aid benefits during Scholars’ college years. As Scholars work towards their goal of college completion, colleges are a valuable partner for Scholars, their families and the school counselors and community organizations that help them succeed.

Campus Contacts & Services for 21st Century Scholars

Please see the 21st Century Scholar eligible colleges list for contact information for each Indiana college. Additionally, the Scholar incentive list provides information on academic support and other benefits offered to Scholars at each campus.

ScholarCorps Members

ScholarCorps AmeriCorps members are placed at select colleges and universities across Indiana and serve as an on-campus resource to freshman and sophomore 21st Century Scholar students enrolled at that institution. The ScholarCorps AmeriCorps program aims to increase 21st Century Scholar retention and success by providing on-campus programming, direct support and connecting students to various on-campus resources, information and services needed to be successful in college. Each ScholarCorps AmeriCorps member will be charged with providing Scholars with resources in alignment with four programmatic goal areas, including: 1.) Academic Performance and Persistence, 2.) Student Engagement and Enrichment, 3.) Career Exploration and Preparation, and 4.) Financial Literacy and Debt Management. For more information, please  click here.
