Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast in Fort Wayne is one of eight Ivy Tech campuses across the state that will provide office space to expand the outreach of Indiana's Twenty-first Century Scholars program.
 
The program, which was started by the state in 1990, provides scholarships of up to four years to income-eligible students for in-state tuition. The students enroll in the program in the seventh and eighth grades and must fulfill a good-citizenship pledge.
 
In a statement, Ivy Tech Community College said outreach coordinators for the Twenty-first Century Scholars program will be based at the eight campuses. The coordinators will work to enhance collaboration among colleges and universities, school districts, youth organizations and community-based programs so Twenty-first Century Scholars have access to resources and services that help prepare them for college and earn a degree.
 
The state-funded Twenty-first Century Scholars program recently was restructured to emphasize college completion. Outreach coodinators also will be based at Ivy Tech campuses in Indianapolis, Evansville, Lafayette, Gary, Kokomo, Columbus and Muncie.
