Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program

Indiana ranks near the bottom of the 50 states in the percentage of its residents 25 years old who hold a baccalaureate degree. This ranking portends an unattractive future for Indiana's economy and quality of life in this increasingly technological and complex world. Lilly Endowment is confident that leaders of Indiana's communities - large and small, rural and urban - can rally their fellow residents around efforts to increase the level of educational attainment in our state.

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.

Begun 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 $800 per year for required books and equipment.

Mission:
 Our mission is to be proactive in creating and growing an enduring source of charitable assets that will enable us to identify and respond to the emerging and changing needs of our community. We accomplish this through our leadership and grantmaking in areas such as: education; economic development; health and human services; civic and historical affairs; arts and culture; and recreational activities.

The gratitude that I have for the Martin County Community Foundation is immeasurable. I believe that if the residents of this county were aware of the type of work being done on their behalf, that they too would hold the MCCF in high regard.
