28 May Seven Lilly Finalists Receive $1,500 Each
Annually, the Huntington County Community Foundation (HCCF) administers the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship, a four-year full tuition scholarship to any college within Indiana. During the process, the HCCF scholarship committee chooses around ten students from a pool of applicants for a first round of face-to-face interviews. Of those interviewed, three are chosen for a second interview with one student becoming the Lilly Scholar and two students becoming Lilly Finalists.
In 2001, HCCF began awarding Lilly Finalists $1,500 each to reward them for their tremendous efforts in academics, extracurriculars, and community service.
In 2005, the scholarship became renewable up to four years of post-secondary education.
In 2011, the Irvin & Loretta Murphy Community Scholarship was established at HCCF to support the Lilly Finalist Scholarship program.
Since creating the Lilly Finalist Scholarship, HCCF has awarded a total of 42 students $193,500 in scholarships. We congratulate Cameron Buzzard, Sam Daugherty, Kristen Dyson, Kylie Frederick, Alexa Hill, Melanie Lisinicchia, and Nathan Park as our 2017 Lilly Finalist Scholars!
