The Community Foundation of Noble County recently interviewed ten top honor students, three from West Noble, in the final phase of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship nomination process for Noble County. These students were selected to interview based on their applications submitted in August to the community foundation which were reviewed by a panel of judges representing the central, east and west part of Noble County.
The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship provides four years of full-tuition and required fees awarded to one well-rounded high school senior who resides in Noble County, who will receive a diploma from an accredited Indiana high school by the end of June 2020, and will pursue a full-time baccalaureate course of study at an accredited public or private college or university in Indiana. Community Foundation of Noble County also requires community service, volunteerism, extra-curricular activities, leadership roles and honors and awards and at least a 3.80 high school grade point average.
Names of the top candidates will be submitted to Independent Colleges of Indiana, Inc for final selection of the recipient. ICI is a nonprofit organization that represents 30 regionally accredited, degree-granting, nonprofit, private colleges and universities in the state. The Noble County recipient of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship will be announced in early December 2019. Finalists not selected for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship will receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Community Foundation of Noble County
Good luck ladies!
