Applications for Lilly Scholarship available online

Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications are now available online starting through the Henry County Community Foundation website at www.henrycountycf.org. Deadline for submission is Thursday, Sept. 19.

All Henry County residential students graduating no later than June 30, 2020, and currently attending Blue River Valley, Hagerstown, Knightstown, New Castle, Shenandoah, Tri and Union high schools may apply.

Along with the student data, students must submit SAT/ACT scores, spring 2019 transcripts, a head-shot photograph and must also submit three letters of recommendation through the online application.

Each school corporation will select a nominee for further consideration to submit to the Henry County Community Foundation’s Selection Committee made up of three professionals from outside Henry County. Following the Selection Committee’s in-depth review process, one nominee and two alternates will be forwarded to Independent Colleges of Indiana for final selection of Henry County’s 2019 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.

The Lilly scholar will receive funding for otherwise unreimbursed 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. Lilly finalists who do not receive the scholarship will be granted a one-time award from the community foundation for $1,000.

Any students wishing to apply for the scholarship by the deadline may find it online at the Henry County Community Foundation’s website at www.henrycountycf.org. Please contact the Foundation office at 765-529-2235 or your school’s counseling office with any questions.
