Eligibility for the TRIO Scholars Program requires an IWU student be identified as one of three populations:
- First generation - neither parent has received a 4-year college degree;
- Low income - family income may be found in the Low-Income Levels published yearly by the Dept. of Education; view the low-income chart.
- Disabled individuals - you have a documented physical or learning disability.
If you meet one or more of these criteria and are interested in making application, click on Forms and select TRIO Scholars Application, or contact The Center for Student Success(Student Center 220 or call 765-677-2257).
The Higher Education Act of 1965 was enacted to assist students in their pursuit of college degrees. Title IV of this act created three distinctive programs, coined “TRIO” programs, to assist in removing invisible barriers for individuals in these populations.
