SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Three Indiana University regional campuses have been awarded a three-year, $450,000 grant aimed at helping Ivy Tech students to earn four-year degrees.

IU Northwest, IU South Bend and IU Kokomo are sharing the grant from The Kresge Foundation. The grant will fund a program that will create degree path to help Ivy Tech students transfer to one of the regional campuses and get the support they need to earn a bachelor’s degree. The goal of the program is to increase the number of college graduates in Indiana.

The program requires participating students to attend college full-time, maintain good academic standing, meet regularly with college and university advisers, and finish both the associate and bachelor’s degrees in no more than nine semesters.
