Introducing our 2017 Lilly Scholars:

Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, written essays, letters of recommendation and financial need. Leadership and service at school and in the community are also a component of selection. Chosen from a large pool of applicants from throughout Wayne County, the Foundation’s Lilly Scholars receive a four-year full tuition scholarship and book stipend to the pubic or private Indiana college of their choice.
