February Monthly Media

Indiana’s 21st Century Scholarship program is designed to help low-income students further their education. However, 82% of Scholars are at risk of losing that money and their chance at postsecondary success because of a recent change to the program’s requirements. What’s behind the change? What are the new steps Scholars must go through in order to receive their scholarship? This month our experts explain why the state chose to put this program in place and why these new steps are goals every college-bound student should consider before leaving high school. Learn more about how these changes can impact the Scholars you work with in IYI’s monthly column for February.
