The University of Southern Indiana offers an annual scholarship program for adult learners to recognize their academic achievement and provide financial assistance as they work to complete an associate's or bachelor's degree.

The scholarship is awarded in the spring of the academic year and is available for use for tuition, fees, books and other USI expenses beginning that fall. Most awards are in the range of $500-$2,000.
