LOOKING FOR MATERIALS YOU CAN USE IN YOUR CLASSROOM?

We know that as an educator, you want to give your students every possible opportunity to succeed. The resources available to Indiana students go far beyond scholarships, but many students and families might not know how many resources they have available to use. From getting ready for college, to help on knowing how to pay, to making a career path plan, these initiatives and resources can help students get on the right path to education and stay there.

College GO! Campaign

College GO! — College GO! is dedicated to helping students find the right college that fits their personality and interests. From August through November, College GO! gives students options to research schools and visit campuses, and then guides them through the steps of preparing and applying for college. See the resources that College GO! provides below.



College Application Week, a national initiative of the American College Application Campaign (ACAC), aims to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue education after high school. The purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the college admissions process and ensure each student submits at least one admissions application.

In Indiana, College Application Week is part of Learn More Indiana’s annual College GO! campaign. In the chart below, find resources for hosting your own College Application Week event and application information for Indiana colleges, including fee waiver information for College Application Week. This year’s College Application Week is September 23-27, 2019. Please also join us in celebrating #WhyApply Day on September 20, 2019 by sharing a reason for applying to college with a selfie on social media. Use this printout, and use #WhyApply and #CollegeGO.

Cash for College Campaign

Cash for College — learning how to pay for it all (Dec – Mar).
There’s no two ways about it, college is expensive. Many families might not know about all of the options they have to help make college more affordable. This makes it harder to give children the education they need to succeed. From December to March, Cash for College holds workshops and hands out materials so that families can learn more and take on their FAFSA forms with confidence.

Career Ready Campaign

Career Ready — planning your career path (Apr – Jul). College exists as part of a plan to get students to the career they want, which is why it’s so important to help students discover their career path before committing to college.
