Education has been a primary focus of the Foundation’s efforts since its founding in 1993. In fact, the first endowment fund established was the Larry C. Banks Bronze Star Memorial Scholarship.
The Foundation manages several academic scholarship funds, many established expressly for Brown County High School graduates. However, other, like the Banks Scholarship, focus on vocational education and/or non-traditional students.
Additionally, through the Foundation’s affiliation with Lilly Endowment Inc., twenty-three Brown County residents have received four-year full-tuition scholarships through the Endowment’s Community Scholars Program.
In a collaborative effort with local citizens and the school corporation- your neighbors and ours- we were successful in seeking a $5-million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to fund the Career Resource Center, providing educational opportunities and career consultation for all Brown County residents.
