Fall 2017 Deadline for 2018 Lilly Endowment Community Scholars

The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship is a 4-year full-tuition scholarship to one local high school senior who will begin their college career in the fall of 2018. The recipient must intend to be a full time student and pursue a baccalaureate degree at any accredited public or private Indiana college or university.

Lilly Endowment Community Scholar will be named in early December 2017. Until last year, scholarship recipients were identified in March of the year they graduated from high school. This change took effect within all Indiana community foundations.

The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications are now available and the online application deadline is September 1, 2017.

Get information and access to the application for each county:

North Judson-San Pierre High School Memorial Committee Fund: The members of the North Judson-San Pierre High School Class of 1970 have established a fund with the Northern Indiana Community Foundation with plans to build a monument to the historic North Judson-San Pierre High School. The NJ-SP High School Memorial Committee hopes to commemorate the NJ-SP High School by constructing a monument on the site of the former high school on Keller Avenue.

The committee and members of the North Judson-San Pierre High School Memorial Fund hope that graduates will take time to review the plan and consider helping to make the proposed monument a reality.
