Lilly Scholars Help Improve the life of their Communities


The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship has been helping students in Morgan County, and across Indiana, attend the college or university of their dreams since 1998. The scholarship grew out of the Lilly Endowment, an Indianapolis-based, private philanthropic foundation created in 1937. The foremost priority of the Endowment’s founders was to help the people of their city and state build a better life. Consequently, the idea for the scholarship to increase the level of education in Indiana by helping Hoosiers attend Indiana colleges and universities was a natural programmatic addition for the endowment. The Lilly Scholarships are distributed through local community foundations, which serve all of the 92 counties in Indiana.The endowment also raises awareness of community foundations, and how they can help improve the quality of life of Indiana residents.
