Local communities usually benefit from initiatives that prioritize giving back and uplifting certain areas.
Oftentimes, these initiatives are started by natives of said community and build a legacy that lasts for generations.
Today, especially after the last 18 or so months, it’s important to support students who make it their mission to kickstart growth in their community through intentional and effective efforts.
The Lillie Award will go to one high school or undergraduate minority student (Black, Latinx, Native American, Asian) who has made it their mission to give back to their community via athletics, performing arts, or STEM.
To apply, please write about yourself and how your planned career path will benefit your local community in a positive way.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and how your STEM, athletic, and or performing arts background will benefit your local community in a positive or uplifting manner.
The application deadline is Oct 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Oct 31, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
