Each Lilly Endowment Scholarship provides for full-tuition, required fees and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment for four years of undergraduate study on a full-time basis leading to a baccalaureate degree at any eligible Indiana public or private, not-for-profit college or university.  The Lilly Endowment created the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program for the 1998-1999 school year and has supported the program every year since with tuition grants totaling over $505 million. More than 5,200 Indiana students have received this scholarship since the program’s inception.

2) To increase awareness of the beneficial roles Indiana community foundations can play in their communities
3) To encourage and support the efforts of current and past Lilly Endowment Community Scholars to engage with each other and with Indiana business, governmental, educational, nonprofit and civic leaders—to improve the quality of life in Indiana generally and in local communities throughout the state.
