(INDIANAPOLIS) - As part of its 31 Answers (to Your Questions about College) initiative, the Independent Colleges of Indiana will award two $5,000 scholarships to eligible students between the ages of 13 and 19.

The scholarships are made possible through the generosity of F.A. Wilhelm Construction Co., Inc., one of ICI's corporate partners.

Students between the ages of 13 and 19 and enrolled in middle, junior, or high school are eligible to enter. Entries will be accepted November 1 through November 4, 2016.

Entry forms, as well as more details about eligibility requirements, are found at www.indianacolleges31.org by clicking on the under "Enter to Win" tab at the top of the page.

The scholarship may be used at any one of Indiana's 31 private, non-profit colleges and universities upon the student's acceptance and enrollment. Winners will be picked at random from the completed entries.

ICI's 31 Answers campaign - a series of short videos made by admissions counselors, students, and others on ICI campuses - came about through conversations with high school guidance counselors who expressed a need for a one-stop resource for the most common questions students and their families have when thinking about college.

"31 Answers is a resource that high school guidance counselors, students and parents have sought," said Richard Ludwick, president and CEO of ICI. "We're happy to provide easy-to understand answers to sometimes hard questions. This is a privilege for ICI, because we're in the business of focusing on students' needs by making college affordable and easy to navigate."

While the 31 Answers campaign ends on October 31, the website and videos will continue to be available as a resource for students and their families to use whenever needed.

Independent Colleges of Indiana serves as the collective voice for the state's 31 private, nonprofit colleges and universities. ICI member institutions enroll some 100,000 students (approximately 17 percent of all undergraduates statewide) and annually produce 32 percent of all bachelor's degrees in Indiana.
