Congrats to our Spring 2018 Grads!


Questa Education Foundation is proud to announce the 2018 spring graduating class. This graduating class includes 34 students from Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, Noble and Whitley counties. These Questa Scholars have received their associate’s or bachelor’s degrees in various fields, and several are already employed in the Northeast Indiana area in companies such as Parkview Regional Medical Center, the Allen County Courthouse, Action Environmental, and area public schools.

Our mission at Questa is to invest in talent within the area and help fund their education. In return, these students will be valuable assets to the Northeast Indiana workforce, while also beginning a successful career with less debt. These scholars received low-interest forgivable loans:  50% in loan forgiveness for living and working in northeast Indiana for 5 years following graduation, and an additional 25% of the total loan is paid back when they attend and graduate from one of the eight partner regional institutions: Indiana Tech, IPFW, Ivy Tech, Huntington University, Grace College, Manchester University, Trine University, and University of St. Francis.  In other words, a scholar can borrow $20,000.00 with the possibility of only having to pay back $5,000.00.

Local support is essential – funding for Questa Scholars comes from local and regional foundations, businesses and organizations. For more information on how you can fund scholars in your community, visit our website at or call us at 260-407-6494.

On behalf of the Questa team we would like to say congratulations to all our recent graduates, and we wish you all the best as you enter your new careers. Below are the names of our graduates, the university they attended, as well as their program of study while in college. Congrats graduates!
