Indiana 21st Century Scholars Program
This grant, awarded to Indiana residents by the State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana (SSACI), can be used to pay tuition and fees.
You must have signed a contract with SSACI when you were in the seventh or eighth grade. You may receive the award for eight semesters. Additionally, the awards must be used within eight years after the date you first apply and become eligible for the award. You must be working on a first undergraduate degree and be enrolled for at least 12 hours each semester.
You need to reapply to SSACI for funding each year by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 10. You must respond to any information requests from SSACI by June 10. Visit our How to Apply section for more information.
State program guidelines require that you maintain full-time enrollment during the first four weeks of each semester. Less than full-time enrollment during the first few weeks will result in cancellation of the award.
Students who initially enroll in a SSACI eligible institution after June 30, 2012 must maintain at least the following cumulative grade point average (GPA):
- (a) For credit hours applicable to the equivalent of the applicant's freshman academic year, a cumulative grade point average that the eligible institution determines is satisfactory academic progress.
- (b) For credit hours applicable to the equivalent of the applicant's sophomore academic year, a cumulative grade point average of 2.25 on a 4.0 grading scale or its equivalent as established by the eligible institution.
- (c) For credit hours applicable to the equivalent of the applicant's junior or senior academic year, a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 grading scale or its equivalent as established by the eligible institution.
After the first semester (or its equivalent) at the eligible institution that a person does not achieve the requisite cumulative GPA specified in (a), (b), or (c) above, the person is considered to be in warning status and must achieve the requisite cumulative GPA by the end of the next semester (or its equivalent) at the eligible institution in order to continue to receive benefits under this law. SSACI will allow only one warning semester. Appeals should be submitted to SSACI for consideration.
