Aces Opportunity Grant Makes UE Tuition-Free for Qualified Indiana Freshmen
Posted: Thursday, September 17, 2020
The University of Evansville has launched the Aces Opportunity Grant to make its transformative education accessible to students who display the greatest financial need.
Through the Aces Opportunity Grant, qualified freshmen entering in the fall of 2021 whose families earn less than $50,000 will pay no tuition out of pocket. Eligible Indiana students who submit a UE application for admission will automatically be considered for this grant.
"The Aces Opportunity Grant makes UE accessible to all Indiana students so that a financial barrier is not an obstacle to high impact, private education," said president Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz. "The grant program is a strong statement that all students should have choices about how to plan for a successful future in a small classroom environment and, at the same time, to make a positive impact on our communities by joining our commitment to service in a changing world."
The Aces Opportunity Grant works by bridging the gap between the scholarships and grants students receive and UE's tuition costs.
"We know quality higher education is expensive," said Kenton Hargis, UE's director of admission. "But we want to help more students find a way to say yes to UE."
