Community Foundation and Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships

Students who submit an application are eligible for all scholarships administered by The Foundation, including the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.

Applications require three appraisals to be submitted on the applicant’s behalf. The application software will not allow the student to submit an application until all 3 appraisals have been submitted, so we recommend requesting your appraisals as early as possible so as not to risk missing the deadline. 

PLEASE notify the individuals that will be submitting an appraisal prior to entering their contact information in our application software.  

The Foundation also manages many scholarships administered by colleges and high schools, which require separate applications. See our available scholarships to learn more.
