Grants available for high school students

To pursue work-based learning and credentials outside the classroom

(BATESVILLE, Ind.) -- Local lawmakers encourage high school students who want to pursue work-based learning and credentials outside the classroom to apply for the state's newly launched Career Scholarship Account program.


State Rep. Alex Zimmerman (R-North Vernon) said sophomores, juniors and seniors can receive up to $5,000 to access qualified training opportunities. About 1,000 spots are available for the 2023-2024 school year and students can apply for a Career Scholarship Account until the Oct. 1 deadline.


"By utilizing these scholarships, students looking to head straight into the workforce can learn valuable skills before leaving high school," Zimmerman said. "These experiences will help make them more marketable to employers and increase their confidence when applying for jobs."


It is available for students who are enrolled in a course or educational experience approved by the Indiana Department of Education. Eligible students may also be enrolled in an apprenticeship, applied learning experience, work-based learning.


Approved students will receive $5,000 over four disbursements and can use the money toward certain qualified expenses:

  • Expenses to enroll in and attend sequences, courses, apprenticeships, or programs of study;

  • Career coaching and navigation services;

  • Postsecondary education and training;
