21st Century Scholar Student Application

The 21st Century Scholars Society scholarship was established in 2007 to invest in IVCC’s most promising students. The Society’s mission is to reward currently enrolled IVCC students who demonstrate academic excellence and college and community service.

A selection committee will review and choose from the applications submitted.
The Scholar is awarded up to $3,000 for their sophomore year to assist with tuition, fees, books or educational expenses. In addition, finalists could possibly receive awards ranging from $500 up to $1,500.
