Student Scholarships

#1 in the state for social mobility

One of the most remarkable things is the range and diversity of students that call Indiana State University home. Our social mobility story is rooted in the fact that we meet students where they are and help them rise to where they want to be. Our commitment to scholarship support is the key to our continued success. It’s time to be so bold.
