IWU’s Marion Campus announces full-tuition 21st Century Scholarship

MARION – Indiana Wesleyan University’s Marion Campus announces the establishment of the 21st Century Scholarship. Indiana high school graduates achieving the distinction of being named a 21st Century Scholar, along with earning a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 or above and being PELL Grant eligible, will receive full tuition from Indiana Wesleyan University.

The full tuition is comprised of all sources of eligible financial aid students would receive from Indiana Wesleyan University along with state and federal grants. The 21st Century Scholarship is for new students enrolling in the fall of 2022 on the IWU-Marion campus.  

The new scholarship is the latest example of the ongoing commitment from the university to help students earn a life-changing degree from IWU. This past year, the university invested over $25 million of institutional aid in the form of scholarships and grants to students attending the Marion, Indiana campus.

Indiana Wesleyan University is committed to helping students navigate the transition into college and thrive in their academic program throughout their remaining years on campus. “We currently have a 21st Century Scholar advisor who is already working with all first-year students to provide connection and information. Beginning in the fall of 2022, the 21st Century Scholar advisor will serve as the first-year advisor to students in tandem with a faculty advisor,” said Dr. Crystal Keetch, Director of Registration & Academic Services (RAS) and First-Year Advising. “The 21st Century Scholar Advisor is in RAS to help students as they begin at IWU and navigate into and through their first year, but will also continue to serve as a support system all the way through to graduation,” said Keetch.

Another aspect of the support system IWU provides for students on the residential campus is access to exceptional career development services. The university provides a variety of free professional development services and resources for students, including career fairs, a life-calling course, internships and networking opportunities. This is a vital part of the greater community that helps students thrive by encouraging them to become all that God has created them to be as they discover, clarify and develop their calling and learn how their unique gifts and strengths can be used to lead others and influence the world for Christ.
