The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program offers two full-tuition scholarships for Morgan County who will have graduated by the end of June, 2014 with a diploma from a regionally accredited Indiana high school and who will be first time college students.
Since the Lilly Endowment Scholarship Program was first offered in 1998, Lilly remains steadfast in its belief that education at all levels is indispensable to the personal, civic, and economic well being of our community. These scholarships must be used to pursue baccalaureate degrees at any accredited public or private Indiana college or university beginning in the fall of 2014. The Endowment hopes that this program will encourage many of Indiana’s most talented students to attend one of Indiana’s fine higher education institutions and after graduation, consider pursuing occupations in Indiana.
