Indianapolis's only full-tuition, full-need scholarship. Act Six brings together diverse, multicultural cadres of young people who want to use their college education to make a difference on campus and in their communities.

Eligibility

STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY IF THEY:

A) Love your community and want to use your college education to make a difference as a leader on campus and at home;
