Apply for the Nina Scholars scholarship program!

We invite you to apply for the Nina Scholars program, which is a scholarship program at Ivy Tech Community College for students who face hardships and adversity that often prevent them from having the opportunity to complete a college degree.

What is the Nina Scholars Program?

The scholarship was created by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust in 2001 in tribute to the life and values of Nina Pulliam (1906-1997), who was a journalist, business leader, humanitarian, and lover of all creatures. The Nina Scholars Program provides an environment where students from disadvantaged backgrounds can obtain the resources and financial support needed to successfully complete a college education.
