Hoosier Aces Scholarship - Entering Fall 2024

Freshmen entering in the Fall of 2024 who meet the following criteria will receive the Hoosier Aces Scholarship which in combination with other gift aid will cover tuition, fees, standard housing, and meals. No special application is needed to be awarded the Hoosier Aces Scholarship. It will automatically be offered to qualified Indiana students who meet the following criteria:

  • Have a family adjusted gross income of less than $60,000
  • Are eligible for free or reduced lunch as determined by the National School Lunch Act


How It Will Work

UE will first combine the student's UE Scholarships, Indiana State Grant Funding, and Federal Grant Funding. Any remaining gap between this combined amount and full-time tuition, full-time fees, standard housing and meal costs will be covered through the Hoosier Aces Scholarship. In this way, UE ensures the student will have no out-of-pocket costs for full-time tuition and fees, or standard housing and meals.

Renewability Requirements

  • Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
  • Annually submit the FAFSA by April 15
  • Meet credit hour requirements for on-time state award
  • Continue to meet adjusted gross income criteria threshold reported on the FAFSA
  • Continue to demonstrate highest financial need (0 SAI or lower) as determined by the FAFSA

For students meeting these requirements, UE will renew the Hoosier Aces Scholarship for a total of 4 years (8 fall/spring semesters total; excludes summer).

In subsequent years, if a student meets institutional requirements, but is no longer a 0 or lower SAI or only meets credit hour requirements for full-time state award, the grant amount offered in year 1 will be awarded.
