- Must intend to pursue a full-time baccalaureate course of study at an accredited public or private nonprofit college or university in Indiana,
- Must be pursuing an academic and/or technical honors diploma at the end of their Junior year, and

In Kosciusko County, the Kosciusko County Community Foundation recommends two recipients of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship to Independent Colleges of Indiana for final selection. The local process is “blind” in that committee members do not have access to student names when reviewing applications. Consideration for the scholarship is given to academics, community service, extracurricular involvement, work experience, references and essay responses.
The scholarship provides four-year, full-tuition to the recipients to attend their Indiana college or university of choice, and are a result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education.
The deadline for all other traditional Community Foundation scholarships is March 15, 2020. Information about those opportunities can be found at www.KCFoundation.org/Scholarships.
