Aces Opportunity Grant

With the Aces Opportunity Grant, freshmen entering in the Fall of 2021 who meet the following criteria will not pay any tuition out of pocket. No special application is needed to be awarded the Aces Opportunity Grant. It will automatically be offered to qualified Indiana students who:

  • Have a household adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less
  • Have a high school GPA of 3.25 or higher
  • Are eligible for Indiana state grant funding
  • File the FAFSA by April 15, 2021
  • Live on campus

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 and full-time fees will be covered through an Aces Opportunity Grant. In this way, UE ensures the student will have no out of pocket tuition costs.
