Textbook Scholarship

The Indiana TRIO has established a scholarship program to help finance textbook expenses in higher education. All students who participate in any TRIO program in the state of Indiana are eligible.

Four (4) awards of $250 will be paid to each selected student as the winner of the Indiana TRIO Textbook Scholarship. The Indiana TRIO Scholarship Committee, appointed by Indiana TRIO’s President, will select the recipient of the scholarship by middle of April.

Each TRIO program is limited to four (4) application submissions per scholarship.
