IWU renews Triangle Scholarship opportunity for local students

A total of 125 students from Grant and the surrounding counties are attending Indiana Wesleyan University’s residential campus this fall as a result of the Triangle Scholarship. The 2015-2016 academic school year was the first time this scholarship was offered, and the University is pleased to offer it again for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic school year.

The scholarship is awarded to students who meet at least two of four key attributes: local, multicultural, first-generation or a family expected contribution (EFC) under $10,001 as calculated by the U.S. Department of Education from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A student must meet either the local or multicultural requirement, in addition to fulfilling at least one of the other three attributes. To be considered local, a student must reside in Blackford, Grant, Howard, Miami or Wabash County.

Each Triangle Scholarship will be between $2,000 and $4,500, and calculated by totaling the sum of the values applicable to the categories that match the student. The local, first-generation and EFC less than $10,001 attributes will each earn the student $1,000, while the multicultural attribute will earn the student $1,500. The scholarship is renewable for up to three years provided the student maintains full-time enrollment every fall and spring term, meets all Satisfactory Academic Progress standards and maintains at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at IWU.

“We’re extremely thankful to have a scholarship program that is so in line with the spirit of the institution,” said Director of Admissions Adam Farmer. “This scholarship makes an IWU education a reality for students who may have thought that a private, Christian education was out of reach. Because of the Triangle Scholarship, that doesn’t have to be the case.”
