    Act Six is an urban leadership award which sends seven Indianapolis area students each year to Taylor University tuition-free and potentially with a full ride. The mission of Act Six seeks to target students underrepresented in higher education, remove barriers to their education, and equip them to change their communities. The seven selected students stick with each other as a cohort as they go through college and as they, during their senior year, participate in weekly training covering race, time management and other topics to prepare them for the transition to college.
