This grant is for eligible State of Indiana members of the Indiana Air and Army National Guard.

  • Certification must be done for each term of enrollment.
  • Must be in active drilling status.(The unit commander is the sole determiner of this status for each term.)

How much is a National Guard Supplemental Grant?

This grant covers on-campus tuition costs. There is a 30 credit hours maximum for the academic year.  At 2014-2015 tuition rates, this would give a person going 12 or 15 credits a semester 12 X 264.95 = 3179 or 15 X 264.95 = 3974 per semester.
