The H. Kent Weldon Scholarship Program was created in memory of the late Kent Weldon by his family and with the support of his higher-education colleagues at the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and ICI. It was established in 2008.
The Program will provide need-based financial aid awards to those students who meet the program guidelines and are selected through the awards process as follows:
- The scholarships will be awarded through a competitive process. Financial aid officers or other appropriate campus personnel will nominate candidate(s) who will submit an application on a timely basis.
- There is a limit of two submissions per institution.
- Students must be residents of Indiana and either a junior or senior in the next academic year, scheduled to graduate by the following June.
- As a need-based award program, verification of financial need is to be confirmed by a campus official for each student nominee; students must be eligible for either or both of the following: a federal Pell Grant or a need-based grant from the Department of State Financial Aid for Indiana.
- Student(s) must be in good academic standing at his or her college.
- Awards will be paid directly to the student's college and will be applied directly to the student's tuition/fee account.
