The Foundation will nominate one local graduating senior for the scholarship. To be eligible, students must be a graduating senior from LaGrange County who will graduate from a LaGrange County high school by June 30, 2021. They must also plan to pursue a full time baccalaureate course of study beginning in the fall of 2021 at an accredited Indiana college or university. The student must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0.

They must be in by 5 PM on September 15. The Community Foundation’s Lilly Scholarship Advisory Committee will evaluate applicants on academic achievement, demonstrated service to others, leadership ability, commitment and motivation to succeed, employment history, extracurricular involvement and essays.

A personal interview will assist in determining the scholarship nominee. Five finalists will be selected and interviewed in October 2020. The finalists not selected for the Lilly Scholarship will receive a $1,000 four year renewable scholarship from the Lambright Leadership Fund established by Kevin and Carrie Lambright.
Since 1998, a total of 39 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships have been awarded in LaGrange County.
