The jobs of tomorrow have arrived. Are you ready?
There are thousands of good paying jobs available right now in Indianapolis, but too many residents lack the education or training to be hired. We want to change that: every student, every resident, should have access to the jobs of the 21st century. Indy Achieves will make the journey easier for Indianapolis families by removing barriers and providing a debt-free pathway to a better future.
WHO IS INDY ACHIEVES FOR?
Middle school is a time of firsts – first lockers, first dances. Indy Achieves will make sure it is also the first time students start planning for college. The 21st Century Scholarship can provide Indianapolis students a free college education – and Indy Achieves wants every eligible student to sign-up.
Filling out the federal government’s free student aid application online takes just minutes – and can unlock thousands of dollars to help students pay for college. And high school seniors who fill out their form by April 15th are 45% more likely to enroll in college in the fall.
Indy's job market is changing faster than ever. Whether you want to gain new skills or pursue a new career, financial aid is available to make your dream a reality. Indy Achieves will help you navigate any barriers standing in your way.
