21st Century Scholar Success Initiative Partner Resources

We’ve designed the 21st Century Scholars Success Initiative to help more and more area students realize the promise of a college education. In fact, we’re kind of obsessed with it. We’re grateful to all of the incredible school, higher education, and youth-serving organizational partners who are helping Scholars achieve their dreams. That’s why we’ve curated a list of resources designed to help you share the story of 21st Century Scholars and to support existing Scholars. If there’s something you can’t find here, you can track down all of the state’s information at Learn More Indiana.

Communication Tools

We’re all working together on the 21st Century Scholars program, and we want our organization-specific communications to be as consistent as possible, with the same look, feel, and messaging. These resources are designed to help.

  • St. Joseph County-specific logo in .jpg and .gif formats. Use this logo whenever possible in your 21st Century Scholar communications in print or digital formats.
  • St. Joseph County-specific email banner, in .jpg format. This is a great common factor for all the diverse emails our organizations send. You can add your organization’s specific contact information in the footer, or directly below the banner.
  • This QR code leads directly to the Enrollment page and can be dropped into any print communication.
  • This .png color bar incorporates the 21st Century Scholars/Learn More Indiana palette and can be used as a digital art element as directed in the Style Guide (below).
  • Created by the Indiana Commission on Higher Education, this Style Guide for its 21st Century Scholar materials includes PMS colors, typeface direction, and more. This is useful for partner organizations who have access to professional designers and want to create additional materials to promote 21st Century Scholars in St. Joseph County.

  • The full VOX Communication Plan (20 pages), which includes full details of the background research that created the Plan as well as more granular messaging and action items
  • The 21st Century Scholar Success Initiative communications calendar, created by VOX. This Excel file is designed to be a “living document” that your organization can modify to fit your needs. It covers a calendar year and includes suggestions for specific outreach throughout that time frame, color-coded to reflect responsibilities. We will review the calendar annually to try and make it as useful as possible. Here’s a .pdf copy for anyone who doesn’t have access to Excel.
