Lilly Scholarship Applications Available August 1
Beginning August 1, high school seniors throughout Clark and Floyd counties will have the opportunity to apply to receive generous, well-earned four-year scholarships through the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana. The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment, Inc. initiative to help Indiana students attain higher levels of education.
Two students each from Clark and Floyd Counties will be selected to be Lilly Endowment Community Scholars and receive the gift of a four-year scholarship. In addition to full tuition to the accredited Indiana college or university of their choice, the students will receive a $900 annual stipend for books and equipment.
“Last year we awarded more than $450,000 in scholarships to our community’s youth so that they could continue their education and pursue their dreams,” said Crystal Gunther, director of community philanthropy for the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana. “The Lilly Endowment plays a huge role in making this possible and we are so thankful for their continued support of our foundation, this community and our youth.”
This past year, Tomi Clark (Jeffersonville High School), Lucas Eichenberger (Floyd Central High School), Kami Geron (New Albany High School) and Bethany Johnson (Clarksville High School) earned these generous scholarships.
The Lilly Scholarship online application will open August 1 on the Community Foundation’s website at www.cfsouthernindiana.com. Completed applications will be due to the Community Foundation by noon on September 9.
