About the ETV program

ETV is a federally-funded, state-administered program providing academic and financial support to current and former foster youth to use for costs incurred in attending postsecondary education or vocational/technical training. Eligible students can be awarded up to $5,000 per academic year and must initially apply and receive ETV funds before the 21st birthday. The funds may be accessed until the student's 23rd birthday as long as the qualification requirements are met.

How To Apply For ETV

Applicants must initially register by creating a user ID and password for the ETV website. This ID and password should be placed somewhere easily attainable as it will be required each time the online application is accessed. After logging in, click on 'Apply/Renew' to fill out or edit the application; when completed click on 'submit' at the bottom of the page.

Print the Cashier's Statement and Financial Aid Release Form from the 'Forms' section on the ETV website, fill out the top section 'Student Information,' then request the appropriate school office fill out the remaining portions and fax to the Indiana ETV office as instructed at the bottom of the each form. Print the Participation Agreement and read, sign, and date this document, then submit it to the ETV Program as instructed at the bottom of the form; this is only required one time while receiving this financial support.

Request an official transcript be sent to the ETV office from your school's Registrar's Office; an unofficial transcript is acceptable subsequent semesters/terms during the same academic year. Submit any other supporting documents based on the funding choice.

NOTE: Applications are processed on a first come, first serve basis and completion of the ETV application does not guarantee funding. All funding is contingent on the availability of funds.

Renewing ETV - Previously funded students

Each semester/term that ETV funds are requested, the entire application process must be completed. To continue funding, recipients must submit an updated online application, Cashier's Statement, and Financial Aid Release Statement for the upcoming semester/term; an official transcript must also be submitted (unofficial transcript is acceptable only if an official transcript is on file for the current academic year).

All completed documents must be received by the ETV office before funds can be determined and disbursed. Be sure to check your status online or call the office to confirm all information has been received.
