The University of Evansville announced on Thursday the launch of its 'Aces Opportunity Grant' which aims to make 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 the grant.

Through the Aces Opportunity Grant, freshmen entering in the Fall of 2021 who meet the following criteria will not pay any tuition out of pocket.

  • 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

No special application is needed to be awarded the Aces Opportunity Grant. It will automatically be offered to qualified Indiana students.

How it Works

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

The University will renew the Aces Opportunity Grant for up to four years for those who meet the renewability requirements.

More information on the Aces Opportunity Grant can be found on UE's website.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
