The IT Sector Partnership funds the Six Steps to Success training program using the Pell Grant, Workforce Ready Grant, Employer Training Grant, Taking Hoosiers to the Next Level, Garatoni-Smith Family Foundation, Skill-up Grant, and Ivy Tech Scholarships. The students can also use federal or private loans to fund their tuition.

Grants & Scholarships

Pell Grant

A subsidy the U.S. federal government provides for students to pay for college. Federal Pell Grants are limited to students with financial need, who have not earned their first bachelor's degree, or who are enrolled in certain post-baccalaureate programs, through participating institutions. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form completed by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility.

Workforce Ready Grant

The Workforce Ready Grant pays the tuition and mandatory fees for eligible high-value certificate programs at Ivy Tech Community College, Vincennes University, or other approved providers. The grant is available for two (2) years and covers up to the number of credits required by the qualifying program. The grant does not cover courses that do not directly apply to the student’s certificate program. Program-specific fees and equipment are not covered.

Employer Training Grant

Employer Training Grant reimburses employers who train, hire, and retain new or incumbent workers to fill in-demand positions within recognized job fields. The Employer Training Grant is available to help fill in-demand positions within six priority sectors. The grant will reimburse employers up to $5,000 per employee who is trained, hired, and retained for six months, up to $50,000 per employer.

Ivy Tech Scholarships

To qualify for scholarships you must first be enrolled at Ivy Tech. Financial need is a criterion for most scholarships. Be sure to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before applying for scholarships. You should also complete a scholarship application, which is available on MyIvy. Keep in mind that you only have to complete one scholarship application for each academic year to be eligible for most Ivy Tech scholarships. Ivy Tech offers approximately 600 scholarships worth $6 million. Ivy Tech scholarships are typically awarded close to the beginning of each semester.
