Scholarship funds now available for fall 2013 semester

OKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region has over $160,000 in scholarship funding available to students for the fall 2013 semester. The priority deadline for scholarship applications is July 15. Applications prior to July 15 will be awarded before tuition is due this fall. Applications submitted after this date will still be accepted, however there is no guarantee the funds will be awarded before the fees due date of Aug. 16.

Scholarships are a potential solution to reduce or eliminate the amount students may need to borrow. For those who don’t need a student loan, scholarships can help offset expenses associated with attending school such as textbooks, fuel, day care, or housing.

Unlike student loans, scholarships are gift-aid and do not need to be repaid. Scholarship awards are based on a number of factors depending on the specific scholarship criteria. Thousands of dollars are awarded every year in the Kokomo Region. By completing just one application, students will be considered for most of the available scholarships.

Students can complete a scholarship application by going to www.ivytech.edu/financial-aid/scholarships.html and following the directions. For more information, students can contact the financial aid department at kokomo-finaid@ivytech.edu or by calling 800-459-0561.
