With the rising cost of tuition, it is important to plan for college and other higher education expenses. From textbooks to room and board, the costs can add up quickly. It is never too early to start saving for your student’s future. Fortunately, there are financial aid opportunities available for students interested in pursuing education after high school.
Since 1990, Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program has helped thousands of low-income Hoosiers afford a college education and earn a degree. To join the program and qualify for the scholarship paying up to four years of undergraduate tuition at public colleges or universities in Indiana, participants must enroll before June 30 of a student’s eighth-grade school year. With the deadline quickly approaching, those who want to save on college costs need to visit scholars.in.gov and submit an application.

“Indiana’s fetal remains law protects the dignity of human life by requiring the respectful and humane disposal of aborted babies. While I am pleased the U.S. Supreme Court reversed an appeals court ruling blocking our law regarding fetal remains, I am concerned that the court declined to rule on another important part of this law. No life should be terminated on the basis of race, sex or disability such as Down syndrome. Every human being should have every right for a chance at life, and I am confident this issue will be before the courts again.”
STATEHOUSE (May, 28, 2019) – “Like many Hoosiers, it is very frustrating to watch the U.S. Supreme Court miss an opportunity to strike down the appeal court’s ruling on the decision to terminate pregnancy based on potential race, sex or disability. While certainly disappointed, I am encouraged with the justices’ affirmation of life with its ruling regarding the humane burying or cremation of aborted babies. That is a big win for protecting the dignity of life.”
Every time they leave for work, law enforcement officials say goodbye to their families not knowing if they will return to their loved ones. Thanks to their bravery and dedication, each of us know that our communities are protected.

May is National Foster Care Month and a great opportunity to consider how we can help improve the lives of children in need. With over 26,000 children in Indiana’s child welfare system, the General Assembly enacted new laws providing the Department of Child Services with more resources to help vulnerable Hoosiers.
Indiana will need to fill more than 1 million jobs over the next 10 years. As record job openings tug at our already low unemployment rate, employers are struggling to fill positions with qualified workers.
It’s clear we have to do more to strengthen the pipeline of young Hoosier talent to help fill the jobs of today and into the future.
