The Hendricks County Community Foundations Announces Changes to the 2014 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship



HENDRICKS COUNTY – The Hendricks County Community Foundation is excited to announce a few changes to the 2014 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program in Hendricks County. New this year, the Hendricks County Community Foundation is proud to partner with Lilly Endowment, Inc. in selecting three Hendricks County high school seniors as nominees. The number of awards is determined by the County’s population and based on that number—three nominees will be selected from Hendricks County for 2014. Another new change this year looks to emphasize the community service and involvement aspect of the award, students need only have a weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher—removing the Top 15 percent criteria from years past. The scholarship application opens November 1. 

The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program is designed to raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana and leverage the ability of Indiana’s community foundations to improve the quality of life for the state’s residents.

The scholarship provides full tuition, required fees and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment for four years of full-time undergraduate studies leading to a baccalaureate degree at any Indiana public or private college or university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
