Understanding the 21st Century Scholar success program

BATESVILLE – More than 100,000 Indiana students participate in the 21st Century Scholars program, but while these students graduate high school and attend college at a higher rate than Hoosiers overall, just slightly more than one in 10 students in the program graduate from college on time according to a study by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

In an effort to help school counselors, teachers, parents and students better understand the scholarship’s new requirements, the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI) is hosting a forum that will explore how to complete 21st Century’s Scholar Success Program, which will be required of all scholars starting high school this fall.

The Scholar Success Program has been designed by the state of Indiana to better ensure students understand and complete specific steps required to attend and graduate college. The plan outlines expectations for each high school grade level.

The forum will feature Brianna Morse, 21st Century Scholars outreach coordinator for Southeast Indiana. Morse will introduce the Scholar Success Program and focus on how individuals and organizations that work with children can help students complete the required steps, report their progress, and be on track to complete a degree or certificate after high school.

The forum will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at Ivy Tech Batesville, 1 Ivy Tech Dr., Batesville, 47006.

As part of IYI’s Youth Worker Café program, the forum is free and lunch will be served, but reservations are required by Monday, July 15. To make a reservation, email Becky Nobbe at ocof@cmhcinc.org. Reservations may also be made by contacting IYI Statewide Outreach Manager Debbie Jones via phone at (800) 343-7060 or via email at djones@iyi.org.

Youth Worker Cafés are designed to bring together local youth workers to build relationships and inspire collaborations that will benefit children. This Youth Worker Café is made possible by the collaborative efforts of One Community One Family, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and IYI.

For more information on the Youth Worker Café, contact IYI Southeast Indiana Field Representative Michelle Sanchez at msanchez@iyi.org.

To find out more about the 21st Century Scholars Program, contact Brianna Morse, the program’s Southeast Indiana outreach coordinator, at (317) 617-0329 or bmorse@learnmore.org.
