As seniors, Scholars must submit a college application, complete the learning session, “College Success 101,” and file the FAFSA student aid form.
Matt Fleck, a former Indiana Department of Education official who now advises schools and families on postsecondary financial aid, said the Scholar Success Program can help low-income students obtain more education leading to better jobs at higher wages.
You can help students succeed by volunteering to mentor (www.abetterhour.org) and by spreading the word about the Scholar Success Program through employers and community organizations (www.scholars.in.gov).
