When it comes to paying for school, grants and scholarships should be the first option you consider – it’s free money you don’t have to pay back! We highly encourage you to seek out these options in addition to federal aid to cut down on the costs of your college experience. Here are some resources for grants and scholarships in our area.
Indiana Workforce Ready Grant
The Workforce Ready Grant pays the tuition and mandatory fees for eligible high-value certificate programs at Ivy Tech Community College, Vincennes University or other approved providers. The grant is available for two (2) years and covers up to the number of credits required by the qualifying program.
Indiana 21st Century Scholarship
Earning the 21st Century Scholarship provides students up to four years of undergraduate tuition* at any participating public college or university in Indiana. If you attend a private college, the state will award an amount comparable to that of a four-year public college. If you attend a participating proprietary (for-profit) school, the state will award a tuition scholarship equal to that of Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana.
Indiana T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship
Scholarship opportunities to obtain a Child Development Associate (CDA), other certificates, or an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree are available for individuals working in licensed, registered or Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) certified child care programs, in Indiana, through the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Indiana project.
Each year, 3Rivers offers a contest in which applicants have the chance to win a scholarship to help pay for school. The entry process consists of filling out an online application and writing an essay. Our scholarship contests run each year, in late spring.
