Brown County Community Foundation Announces Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Recipient

 

Chloee Robison has been named the recipient of four-year, full tuition scholarships as the Brown County Community Foundation 2020 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.

Chloee will receive full tuition to an accredited public or private nonprofit college or university in Indiana and a $900 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.  She intends to study Engineering.  Chloe is the daughter of Catherine & Todd Copper and the late Tim Robison.

Ten Brown County high school students applied for the Brown County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.  The scholarship committee reviewed the applications and scored them based on scholastic profile, personal recommendations, school activities, community activities, personal goals statement, and written essay.  Finalists were then selected and asked to write an impromptu essay and interview with the committee.    The other finalists were: Caleb Doss, Peyton Proctor, Nicole Prosch, and Allison Stogsdill.

The primary purposes of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program are 1) to help raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana; 2) to increase awareness of the beneficial roles Indiana community foundations can play in their communities; and 3) to encourage and support the efforts of current and past Lilly Endowment Community Scholars to engage with each other and with Indiana business, governmental, educational, nonprofit and civic leaders to improve the quality of life in Indiana generally and in local communities throughout the state.

To date the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program has awarded 4,769 full-tuition scholars and over $405M in scholarship tuition has been provided through the LECSP since the program’s inception in 1998.

Congratulations Chloee!! Brown County is proud and excited to have you represent us as the 2020 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.
