The Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) will award three Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships in 2018.
The number of Lilly Endowment Scholarships available to each county in Indiana is based on population; in the most recent past, Johnson County has awarded two Lilly Scholarships. Recipients receive full tuition to the Indiana college or university of their choice and a $900 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.
“It is with much pleasure that we announce that JCCF will now be able to award three of these prestigious scholarships to deserving students in our county. Receiving the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship is an immense honor for the students who are selected.” said Stephanie Fox, program officer for grants and scholarships at JCCF.
Online applications for the 2018 Lilly Scholarship will opened on July 24, 2017 and closed at midnight on August 25, 2017.
JCCF has administered the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship program locally for 20 years. Applicants are selected based on volunteer community service, academic preparation and performance, leadership and good character.
The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education.
The Johnson County Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1991 to serve donors, award grants and provide leadership to improve Johnson County forever. For more information, call JCCF at 317-738-2213 or visit our website at www.jccf.org.
