The 21st Century Scholars Program began in 1990 as Indiana's way of raising the educational aspirations of low- and moderate-income families. The program aims to ensure that all Indiana families can afford a college education for their children. In 1995, the first group of 21st Century Scholars headed to college with the continued support of the governor and the Indiana General Assembly.
Income-eligible sixth, seventh, and eighth graders who enroll in the program and fulfill a pledge of good citizenship are guaranteed the cost of four years of college tuition at any participating public college or university in Indiana.
