LILLY ENDOWMENT COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP

lilly logoThe Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship program provides scholarships for full tuition, required fees, and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment for four years of undergraduate study on a full-time basis, leading to a baccalaureate degree at any Indiana public or private college or university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The deadline to apply for the 2020 Lilly Scholarship is August 26, 2019.
