Welcome  

Welcome to Morgan County Scholarship Central, brought to you by the Community Foundation of Morgan County.  In 2016 the CFMC helped to distribute nearly $1,000,000,000, including scholarships from the CFMC Scholarship Program, Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program, and Kendrick Foundation.

Information on all CFMC Scholarships is available via SmarterSelect during the Scholarship Season. For further information please contact Hannah Sitz, Program Officer.

New, Earlier Deadline:
Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship
 

Coming Soon -- New, Earlier Deadline: Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship

The timeline for the prestigious Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program faces significant state-wide changes this year. Instead of a winter deadline, applications will be due in early September for Morgan County high school students graduating in 2017.

After conducting an evaluation of the scholarship program, Lilly Endowment recommended an advanced timeline that would allow scholarship recipients more time to decide which college or university to attend. This change affects program deadlines for all Indiana community foundations.

“To account for the new timeline and the availability of SAT or ACT test scores, we have revamped the scoring formulas so that students’ academic achievement can be measured more holistically: factors such as GPA, class rank, rigor of courses, or academic honors will also be considered,” said Sitz. With only minor changes from previous years, evaluation criteria will be broken down to the areas of,

  • Academic Performance (30%),
  • Extracurricular Involvement (20%),
  • Financial Need (20%), Essay (15%), and
  • References/Interview (15%).

Informational seminars will be held in the evening on August 11 at various locations throughout the county.

Deadlines for all other donor-established scholarships administered through the Community Foundation of Morgan County will remain unchanged; those applications will be open November 17, 2016 and will close on February 17, 2017.
