21st Century Scholars

Your 21st Century Scholarship

Your 21st Century Scholarship provides you with an outstanding resource for your college education, but maintaining that award comes with its own requirements. As a college student, you are starting your adult life. You choose your own classes and plan your own schedule. You’re in complete control. The outcomes are up to you. 

Keeping your scholarship

You must do all of the following to maintain your full 21st Century Scholarship:

  • Complete at least 30 academic credits per year
  • Earn Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as determined by your college
  • File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by Indiana's April 15 deadline every year

  • Scholars must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester.
  • Scholars can maximize their scholarships by taking at least 15 credit hours and up to 18 when it makes sense.
