A group of ambitious high school students who are earning their high school diplomas in just three years have signed up for a new state scholarship.
Claudia Braman, executive director of the State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana, says the “Mitch Daniels Early Graduation Scholarship” will provide up to $4,000 to offset college tuition.
Governor Mitch Daniels pitched the idea for the scholarship last year to reward those students who finish up high school early. A formal application is not yet available, but interested students can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Officials at the State Student Assistance Commission and the Department of Education will determine whether interested students are eligible.
