Ivy Tech hosting 21st Century Scholars

Ivy Tech Community College is inviting area 21st Century Scholars and their parents to learn more about the college, its programs, and career pathway opportunities at an upcoming event for high school students.

Chris Schilling, Ivy Tech’s Assistant Director of Marketing and Recruitment, says the event will be from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Jan. 27 at the Columbus Learning Center Auditorium. He adds that all 21st Century Scholar students in Grades 9 through 12 from Bartholomew, Brown, Jackson, and Jennings counties are invited and encouraged to attend.

Schilling says that more than 2,000 students across the four counties are enrolled in the 21st Century Scholars program. The program offers income-eligible Hoosier students paid tuition assistance at an eligible Indiana college or university after they graduate from high school.

Schilling says the 21st Century Scholars event at the Columbus campus will introduce students and their parents to the campus, inform them about college resources, and provide information about Ivy Tech’s programs and how they prepare students for a career. He adds that students will also have the opportunity to learn more about the 21st Century Scholars program.
