Supporting you and your goals
The 21st Century Scholars Success Program is a support program for IUPUI students who affirm their 21st Century Scholars pledge and attend IUPUI. The program empowers you, the scholar, to articulate and achieve your personal, educational, and career goals by providing services, resources, and support systems that promote academic achievement and timely graduation. By participating in the program, you’re supported in developing key skills to increase confidence and motivation—ultimately contributing to your success!
Started in 1990, the 21st Century Scholars program is a nationally-recognized, early college promise program that offers income-eligible Hoosiers up to four years of paid tuition at a participating Indiana college or university after graduating from high school.
Since 2003, the IUPUI 21st Century Scholars Success Program has implemented programs, services, and policies that significantly improve the retention of 21st Century Scholars. Our primary focus is the First-Year 21st Peer Mentoring Program, which has grown to 34 mentees supporting more than 300 participants. In 2012, our office received the Outstanding Institutional Advising Award from NACADA for our work in peer mentoring.
Recently, we have collaborated closely with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education ScholarCorp/ Americorps program, the City of Indianapolis EmployIndy Indy Achieves Program, and several partners on the IUPUI campus to support scholars on their educational journey.
