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.
