ACTSix Scholarship for High School Students

ActSix Indianapolis is calling diverse emerging leaders who love their city to come forward and participate in Indianapolis’s full leadership scholarship. Every year, 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. This year, ACT SIX will award 7 of Indianapolis’s most promising urban leaders full scholarships worth up to $195,000 to Taylor University. Act Six offers a full-tuition, full-need urban leadership scholarship.

Act Six works with colleges and other partners to guarantee that full scholarship recipients receive grants that, at minimum, cover full tuition at the college for four years. Scholars with needs beyond tuition (as determined by the FAFSA) will receive additional grants and work-study to fully meet that need. For most scholars, the awards will, therefore, cover some or all of the cost of room and board, books, travel, and personal expenses. To retain the scholarship, scholars are required to remain active in the program and maintain satisfactory academic progress throughout their undergraduate studies. Once selected, Act Six scholars participate in six months of intensive training with their cadre, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically and grow as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation. After training, Act Six scholars begin college ready to engage the campus and community with a built-in support system and a sense of purpose as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation.

Act Six is a leadership and scholarship program that connects local faith-based community affiliates with faith- and social justice-based colleges to equip emerging urban and community leaders to engage the college campus and their communities at home.
