Collegiate Connection

Financial Assistance

You may be able to receive financial assistance made possible with the support of the Lincoln Financial Group Foundation, the PNC Charitable Trust, and the IPFW Chancellor's Collegiate Connection Scholarship Fund. Students who qualify for the national free or reduced textbook/lunch program may take up to two classes per semester (fall/spring) tuition-free (in-state tuition rate). Distance education fees are not covered by the grant. Students are responsible for their textbooks (paper or electronic), lab fees (if any) and transportation.

This information is verified through the high school corporation and is applied to the student's bill shortly before the payment deadline. A letter confirming that you qualify for financial assistance will be mailed to the student once the high school notifies IPFW.

Please note that this is different from the Twenty-first Century Scholars program, which does not take effect until after a student graduates from high school.

In order to continue receiving this financial assistance, students must maintain a C average in their college classes.
