2016-1017 Questa scholars named

| August 9, 2016

questaFORT WAYNE—The Questa Education Foundation recently announced the names of the 2016-2017 Questa Scholars who will receive financial support for their college educations. This year was another record-setting year with almost 350 completed applications from all over our eleven county region in Northeast Indiana.  Questa officials said, Thanks to collaborative programming with communities, 70 Traditional Scholars have been awarded low-interest forgivable loans in the first phase of our award year.  Contemporary Scholars have yet to be chosen.

The intent of this funding is to help increase access and completion of a post-secondary education with reduced debt and to retain talent in Northeast Indiana. Questa Scholars get a commitment and assurance of funding for up to four years of college at an accredited school.  Scholars are chosen via a multi-level assessment process based on not only grade point average, but also community involvement and an essay explaining how they plan to contribute to the economy of Northeast Indiana as a Questa graduate.

This year, Adams County has joined Questa, along with other communities and, as a result, four funded scholars are from Adams County
