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.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
