Starke County Community Foundation Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship

The primary purposes of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholars program (LECS) are 1) to help raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana; 2) to increase awareness of the beneficial roles Indiana community foundations can play in their communities; and 3) to encourage and support the efforts of current and past Lilly Endowment Community Scholars to engage with each other and with Indiana business, government, educational, nonprofit and civic leaders to improve the quality of life in Indiana generally and in local communities throughout the state. With this purpose in mind, the Starke County Community Foundation scholarship committee seeks candidates who exhibit the ability to succeed at the post-secondary level, who show potential in their chosen field of study, and who exhibit potential as a future leader.

The program will provide one scholarship for full tuition, required fees, and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and required equipment for four years of undergraduate study on a full-time basis, leading to a baccalaureate degree at any Indiana public or private college/university accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Scholarship recipient is to be known as a Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.
