The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program is designed to raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana and increase awareness of the potential of Indiana’s community foundations to improve the quality of life of the state’s residents. Launched in 1998, the program offers four-year, full-tuition scholarships to Indiana students who intend to work toward a baccalaureate degree at any accredited public or private college or university in Indiana. The scholarship also provides $900 per year for required books and equipment.
This program is administered by Independent Colleges of Indiana and includes significant participation by the community foundations in each of Indiana’s 92 counties. Persons interested in detailed information about the program should first contact their local community foundation, or if applicable, their high school guidance counselor.
