Helping Scholars reach success is an incredibly rewarding experience. Whether you represent a campus, are part of a state or community organization, or are an individual looking to give back, there are several ways you can support Scholars on their journey.


Colleges have academic support services that could include free workshops, tutoring and other out-of-class help. Each college has its own programs tailored to its students. You can find out more about your college’s support programs with this interactive map.

Your college may also have a ScholarCorps AmeriCorps member who serves as an on-campus resource to freshman and sophomore 21st Century Scholars. Check out the chart below for your ScholarCorps member’s contact information.

How Can I Support Indiana College Students?
As a member of the community, you can make a difference in the lives of students, increase graduation rates and help develop Indiana’s future workforce. By becoming a mentor or signing your business or organization up as a member of our College Success Coalition, you directly influence students right here in Indiana—with results you can see.

With a mentor, kids are more likely to graduate from high school. Big Brothers Big Sisters of America reports students who regularly meet with mentors are 52% less likely to skip school. By becoming involved in students’ lives, you help them develop positive attitudes toward school, resulting in a rise in the college-educated workforce. In fact, the Starfish Initiative program in Indianapolis saw 80% of their first class of graduates enroll in college.

If your organization is interested in developing a mentoring program, or enhancing an existing one, check out our free College and Career Success Mentoring Toolkit.
