Lilly deadline extended due to snowstorm

Due to the snowstorm last week, the LaGrange County Community Foundation has extended the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship deadline to 4 p.m. on Friday, 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 available through the LaGrange County Community Foundation.

More details and applications are available online at the community foundation website,

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 finalists 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.

For more information regarding this or other community foundation scholarships, contact a high school guidance office or call the community foundation at (260) 463-4363.
