Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 StudentsApplication Instructions
We appreciate your interest in Lilly Endowment's Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students. The aim of the Counseling Initiative is to increase significantly the number of K-12 students in Indiana who are emotionally healthy, realize academic success, graduate from high school, obtain valuable postsecondary credentials necessary for meaningful employment, and are prepared to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.
All Indiana public school corporations and charter schools are eligible to participate in the Counseling Initiative. There are two phases: a noncompetitive planning grant phase and a competitive implementation grant phase.
Guidelines, resource materials and forms may be found below. In addition, here is a link to the video of a recent conference offering more information about organizations that are providing technical assistance to grantseekers as they prepare proposals. An FAQ document may be helpful as well.
