Indiana offers the Adult Student Grant to help you earn an associate's degree, bachelor's degree, or certificates by providing a $2,000 grant. It is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of working adults. Adult students can apply by completing their FAFSA, and then submitting their application on Scholar Track.

To help more Hoosiers gain workforce skills, Indiana has created a new financial aid opportunity for working-age adults: the Workforce Ready Grant. The Workforce Ready Grant pays the tuition and mandatory fees for eligible high-value certificate programs at Ivy Tech Community College or other approved providers. The grant is available for two 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, but are eligible to be covered by Indy Achieves Promise Scholarship.
