Yaeger Family Scholarship

The intent of this scholarship is to provide a full, annual tuition scholarship to a student pursuing a degree at Indiana State University and who has been a foster child or ward of the state. The scholarship is named in honor of John H. Yaeger, who graduated from Indiana State Normal School in 1902 with a two-year teaching degree. He raised six children as a single parent and became a middle school principal. All six children graduated from college in the middle of the Great Depression.

Eligible applicants will be students who have lived in the foster system or have been wards of the court with no living parents. Applicants must be pursuing a degree on-campus. Incoming freshmen must have a cumulative high school GPA of at least 2.5; current students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Preference will be given to incoming freshmen. This scholarship is renewable.
