LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The deadline to sign up for free college tuition is near.

Families of a certain income level have until June 30 to enroll in the 21st Century Scholarship. Enrollment is available to seventh and eighth-grade students.

The state-funded program helps provide access to college or a post-secondary education

Outreach coordinator Joshua Garrison said this is an opportunity that can’t be missed.

“A lot of these students would have a very difficult time attending post-secondary education without this scholarship. We just encourage as many people as possible to get their students, to get their relatives, their friends, their church members to enroll before the June 30th deadline,” said Garrison.

More than 100,000 students are currently enrolled in the program. Students must maintain certain academic requirements through high school.
