  • DOLLARS for SCHOLARS Collegiate Partners!  What is a Collegiate Partner? Collegiate Partners® are colleges, universities and other accredited post-secondary institutions that demonstrate their commitment to students by maximizing the benefit of scholarships awarded through local Dollars for Scholars organizations. Collegiate Partners agree to apply your scholarships first to reduce any unmet student need. Then, if the scholarship is greater than the unmet need, to reduce student loan debt and work-study obligations in the financial aid package. Some Collegiate Partners also go a step further and agree to match a portion of scholarships from Dollars for Scholars chapters and other Scholarship America programs.

What:  Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars is a needs- and performance-based program that provides students the opportunity to earn up to a four-year scholarship at an Indiana college or university.

Who & When:  Hoosier students who meet income criteria can enroll during their 7th- or 8th-grade year of middle school. Students commit to maintaining academic success, remaining drug and alcohol free, and completing college-preparation activities.
