The deadline to apply for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship through the La-Grange County Community Foundation (LCCF) is fast approaching! Applicants need to have completed applications in to the LCCF by 4 p.m. this Fri-day, Jan. 24.
Graduating seniors from public or private LaGrange County high schools and legal residents of LaGrange County who are committed to earning a baccalaureate degree at an accredited four-year Indiana college or university are encouraged to apply this year for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.
Lilly scholars enjoy full tuition for eight successive semesters at the qualifying Indiana College or University of their choice along with an annual book stipend.
Also, effective last year all fi-nalists for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship (not selected as the Lilly nominee) will receive a four-year $1,000 renewable scholarship through the Lambright Leadership Scholarship. New in 2014, there will be an additional $500 one-time Community Scholarship for one of the Lilly semi-finalists.
Since 1998, Lilly Endowment and LCCF have been dedicated to the pursuit of continued education. As a result, thirty-two LaGrange County students have earned the competitive Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship and have since launched successful careers after graduation from college in the fields of education, law, engineering, health care and more.
Last year’s recipient was Westview graduate and Indiana Wesleyan freshman Brett Yoder.
The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship, along with numerous other scholarship opportunities and applications, are available online at the LCCF website, www.lccf.net.
