Through its initiative, College and Community Collaboration, Lilly Endowment Inc. is offering interested Indiana colleges and universities the opportunity to apply for grants to help them envision and undertake collaborative projects with community stakeholders that enhance the quality of life and place in their surrounding communities.
The Endowment recognizes that colleges and universities often serve as anchor institutions in their communities, playing a crucial role in the vitality of their towns, cities, counties and regions. Through this initiative, the Endowment seeks to help interested higher education institutions collaborate with a diverse range of stakeholders to enhance their communities for the benefit of residents and local businesses as well as for the institutions’ faculty, staff and students.
The Endowment is allocating up to $300 million for this competitive, two-phase, five-year initiative.
The 35 Indiana colleges and universities that offer four-year degree programs and have physical campuses in the state are eligible to apply for grants through this initiative.
