The 21st Century Scholars Program is hosted on the IU Northwest campus. It is designed to raise educational aspirations of low- and moderate-income families by affording college education to their children. Seventh- and eighth-graders who enroll in the program and fulfill a pledge to good citizenship to the state are guaranteed the cost of four years of college tuition at IU Northwest (and any other participating public college or university in Indiana) after high school graduation. This program is administered by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and funded by the state of Indiana. Interested persons should contact the office at (219) 980-4351.
