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.

I received a scholarship through the Martin County Foundation the past year. Without this scholarship I would not have been able to attend the university I am presently enrolled in. Not only did receiving the scholarship relieve my parents, I was relieved because I knew I was going to get a great education without being in debt when I graduated. I am very thankful for this foundation.
