Community Foundation Announces $827,000 in Scholarships to Class of 2022
A Total of 112 Scholarships Awarded to Recent Area Graduates
NEW ALBANY, Ind. – The Community Foundation of Southern Indiana announced that it has awarded 112 scholarships totaling more than $827,000 in support of Southern Indiana students for the graduating Class of 2022. Approximately $307,000 of the total scholarship amount was awarded to four recipients of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program.
Linda Speed, president and CEO of the Community Foundation said, “We are very thankful for the generosity of our fund holders, and Lilly Endowment, Inc. for helping to contribute to set up future generations of students for success throughout Clark and Floyd counties. With increasing educational costs around the globe, these scholarships will provide an invaluable resource to help these students pursue their goals and become our community’s leaders.”
Scholarship applications from students throughout the community are reviewed and scored by International Scholarship & Tuition Services (ISTS), which has been an industry expert and a trusted educational assistance program management partner for organizations for the last 35 years.
The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program will provide scholarships for otherwise unreimbursed full tuition, required fees, and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment for four years of undergraduate study on a full-time basis, leading to a baccalaureate degree at any Indiana public or private nonprofit college or university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
“The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship will help me tremendously in my educational journey, as it takes the pressure out of paying for college and allows me to remain focused while I’m at school,” said Jackson Mullins, a 2022 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship recipient and 2022 Clarksville High School graduate. “I would encourage others to apply for scholarships through CFSI. The Foundation is a great organization that gives opportunities, and the resources they provide could have a substantial impact on a student’s life in a positive way.”
The Community Foundation is committed to assisting students of our community in pursuing and completing higher education degrees. The program’s focus is to grow and create endowment funds to provide renewable scholarships at a level of financial impact for diverse educational needs, as well as continue to provide opportunities and share in students’ success.
