Mission & Vision

Questa Education Foundation assists individuals in completing degrees with less debt, so that they will be prepared for the economy of the 21st century and become contributing members of Northeast Indiana’s workforce.

The main way Questa accomplishes this mission is through its forgivable loan programs. It also administers several scholarships
