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. To be considered for this scholarship, an applicant must:

● Be in good academic standing with their university
● Be attending a 2 or 4-year college
● Or be a graduating high school senior who has been accepted for enrollment at a college or university for the fall semester as a freshman


NEW THIS YEAR:  The Director Referral Form will be used instead of recommendation letters for scholarships.  One form will be completed for each student submitting applications for scholarships. For a link to the form, please click here:Director Scholarship Referral Form
