Crawford County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Applications are due TODAY!

September 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

The 2024 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship application is available in Crawford County through the Community Foundation of Crawford County. The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program (LECSP) scholarships may be used for otherwise unreimbursed full tuition, required fees, and a special allocation of up to $900 per year. The special allocation may cover the costs for required books and required equipment for four years of undergraduate study on a full-time basis leading to a baccalaureate degree at any eligible Indiana public or private nonprofit college or university.

Laken Fraime, CFCC Director of Finance and Programs, will meet with CCHS seniors at the school as the 23-24 school year begins.

The program, administered statewide by Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI) and locally in Crawford County through the Community Foundation of Crawford County, is open to all Indiana residents who:

  • graduate from an accredited Indiana high school by 2024 and receive their diploma no later than June 30, 2024;
  • intend to pursue a full-time baccalaureate course of study at an eligible college or university in Indiana; and
  • meet the criteria specific to their local community foundation.

Students can learn more about the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship in Crawford County and apply for this scholarship by visiting www.cf-cc.org to download an application, or visit the CFCC office. Applications must be completed and submitted to the Crawford County High School office by September 1, 2023 to be considered.

Applications will be evaluated on, but not limited to, the following criteria: personal statement of need, extenuating circumstances, personal essay, class rank, GPA, academic coursework, recommendation letter, leadership, and school, non-school activities and work experience.  3-5 finalists will be invited for an interview by the Community Foundation of Crawford County LECSP selection committee, then a recommendation will be made to Independent Colleges of Indiana for final selection of the recipient. Scholarship recipients will be notified in December.
