The following awards for Indiana residents consider both financial need and academic merit. Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 10, in addition to a complete application for admission, to receive these awards.
21st Century Scholarship Covenant
The 21st Century Scholars Program offers tuition assistance to Indiana residents who meet academic and need requirements. Students apply for the 21st Century Scholars Program in the 6th, 7th or 8th grade.
The 21st Century Scholarship Covenant at IU will supplement the state grant to cover the full cost of attendance, including books, room and board, up to the amount of a student's financial need based on the family's expected contribution as defined by the FAFSA. The Covenant provides 21st Century Scholars with enough additional financial aid to meet the full cost of attending IU. This award is renewable for four years (eight semesters) of study at IU as long as the student remains eligible. For more information on the 21st Century Scholarship Covenant, click here.
