Fulfill your dreams of higher education
About the application process
We use a common application process using the Johnson County Community Foundation (Indiana) form. This form will be completed once by applicants and will provide general information for each supplemental scholarship application for which the student chooses to apply. Each scholarship will have specific pages where any additional required items can be found. There are a few scholarships that have a unique application and you must apply for them through a separate link. Once these applications are available, the links will be active below:
The 2017-18 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship application is now open. Application deadline is September 2, 2016 by midnight.

College costs are overwhelming. Even if you or your parents have saved for years, the expenses of tuition and books sometimes stand in your way of achieving your goal of a college degree.
For nearly three decades, our community has come together to help students realize their dreams of furthering their education.
Generous donors have set up scholarships through the Johnson County Community Foundation. They often know how hard it is to meet all of the college costs, and want to ease that burden on students and families.
To be considered for the scholarships, students must fill out applications and provide information about their school work. In some cases, applicants must write an essay or go through an interview.
But the time invested in the scholarship process can make a difference when those college bills come due.
IN 2015, JCCF awarded
