2017 Award Winners - Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship

 
Recipients include: Lizbeth Celis, Concord; Tessa Clark, Bethany Christian; Ana Martinez, NorthWood.
 
The LECS is the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education.
 
Indiana ranks among the lowest states in the percentage of residents over the age of 25 with a bachelor’s degree. The program, now in its 20th year, has awarded 79 LECS to students in Elkhart County, totaling more than $20 million dollars in scholarships. Statewide more than 4,400 have been awarded, providing nearly $4 million dollars in scholarships across Indiana.
 
Through the Community Foundation, the LECS program, administered by Independent Colleges of Indiana, selects three Elkhart County, first-generation, college bound students each year.
 
Scholarship recipients will receive a four-year, full-tuition scholarship toward a baccalaureate degree at any accredited college or university in Indiana.
