Congratulations to New Albany High School senior, Emily Mathews! She is the proud recipient of a Lilly Scholarship. In addition to full tuition to the accredited Indiana college or university of their choice, the students will receive an $900 annual stipend for books and equipment. The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment Inc. initiative to help Indiana students reach higher levels of education. There were over 200 applications submitted this year. Locally, students in all accredited public and private high schools in Clark and Floyd counties were invited to apply. We’re thankful to have organizations like the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana (CFSI) here in our community that make programs like this possible.
“Congratulations to the all of the finalists and thank you to Lilly Endowment, Inc. who has been incredibly supportive of our foundation and this community,” Crystal Gunther, [CFSI] Director of Community Philanthropy, said. “Because of their generosity we are able to provide these life changing, four-year scholarships to deserving students in Clark and Floyd counties who will go on to pursue their education and achieve their goals.”
