25 Sep Fulton County Community Foundation Awards $211,472 in Scholarships

Each year, the Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) distributes scholarships to deserving high school seniors and current college students. This year, the FCCF awarded 119 scholarships to 76 outstanding students. The scholarships totaled $211,472, including the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship, which pays full-tuition to any college in Indiana for four years and a $900 yearly book stipend.

To recognize the recipients, an ice cream social was hosted by the Community Foundation on June 21 at the Fulton County Public Library. Several FCCF board members served the ice cream, which was provided by Sallie’s by the Shore. FCCF Director of Development Brian Johnson and Northern Indiana Community Foundation Scholarship Coordinator Alison Heyde presented the scholarships to students.

These scholarships are possible due to the generosity of the donors who have established the Fulton County Community Foundation’s 53 scholarship funds. The Community Foundation is grateful for all the donors that help make students’ academic goals become a reality.

“Scholarships recognize the hard work and accomplishments of the students receiving them,” said Johnson. “We hope these awards will not only help financially but also encourage the recipients as they pursue the next step in their educational goals.”
