The purpose of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program is to help raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana and to leverage further the ability of Indiana's community foundations to enhance the quality of life of the state's residents.


Since the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program was first offered in 1998, Lilly Endowment has remained steadfast in its belief that education at all levels is indispensable to the personal, civic, and economic well-being of Indiana's residents.


Scholarship recipients are known as Lilly Endowment Community Scholars. The program provides scholarships for full tuition, required fees, and a special allocation of $900.00 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 Northern Central Association of Colleges and Schools.


Don't Miss This Matching Opportunity!!!

Due to the continuing generosity of the Lilly Endowment, every gift to our Community Impact Fund will be matched $1 for $1 until March 31, 2016! For example, a $500 donation will be matched with $500 from the Lilly Endowment for a total gift of $1,000.

The earnings from our Community Impact Fund are used to fund Make a Difference grants to area nonprofits for charitable purposes that will make a positive material difference in Huntington County. These grants are awarded semi-annually in spring and fall cycles. In 2014, over $100,000 was granted to Huntington County nonprofits!
