2018 Lilly Endowment Scholarship Applications Available

The Henry County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications are due to high school guidance counselors on September 22, 2017.

All students who are residents of Henry County, graduating no later than June 30, 2018, and currently attending Blue River Valley, Hagerstown, Knightstown, New Castle, Shenandoah, Tri, and Union high schools may apply.

Along with the application, students must submit SAT/ACT scores, spring 2017 transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a wallet size photograph.  After counselors collect applications, each school corporation will select a nominee for further consideration to submit to the Henry County Community Foundation’s Selection Committee made up of three professionals from outside Henry County.  Following the Selection Committee’s in-depth review process, one nominee and two alternates will be forwarded to Independent Colleges of Indiana for final selection of Henry County’s 2018 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.

The Lilly scholar will receive funding for full-tuition, required-fees, and an allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment, for four years of undergraduate study at any Indiana public or private college or university.  Lilly finalists who do not receive the scholarship will be granted a one-time award from the community foundation for $1,000.

Any students wishing to apply for the scholarship by the deadline may ask their guidance department for an application, or find it online at the Henry County Community Foundation’s website at www.henrycountycf.org.

Please direct any questions about the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program to Katina Reedy, Program Director, at katina@henrycountycf.org or 765-529-2235.
