CVO grants pay tuition and regularly assessed fees at the undergraduate rate for up to 124 credit hours. Tuition coverage is based on the veteran's enlistment date and disability rating. In some cases you must use your CVO benefits within a certain period of time after applying for the grant.

You can find more information about CVO grants at the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

If you’re interested in being considered for a CVO grant, submit your application and all necessary documentation to the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs through ScholarTrack at least 30 days before the start of the semester in which you plan to enroll.
