State supporting high school seniors with grants

IU Southeast is one of several grant recipients

INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The Indiana Commission for Higher Education and the Indiana Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs have partnered to award more than $135,000 to university and community associates to support seniors transitioning to college.

The Summer 2020 COVID-19 Learning Support Grants are designed to aid students who experienced learning loss due to school closures and the transition to online learning. The grants support summer tutoring and college-readiness boot camps.

“Hoosier students need support to move forward and navigate the higher education system during such unprecedented times,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “Low-income and underrepresented populations in particular are facing greater challenges related to technology access and other disruptions to their traditional learning environments. It’s critical we help all Hoosiers prepare for the already-challenging transition from high school to postsecondary education.”

  • Ball State University – $1,620
  • Coates, Inc. – $4,700
