Ben Davis University High School Student to Receive Lilly Scholarship

Francisco Guerra, a senior at Ben Davis University High School, is one of 13 recipients of the 2018 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships for Marion and Hamilton Counties.

Recipients of this scholarship will receive up to four years of full tuition to attend any accredited public or private not-for-profit college or university in Indiana.

High schools in each county submitted two students for consideration for the scholarship. Seventy-nine and 33 students were interviewed in each county, respectively, and finalists’ names were submitted to Independent Colleges of Indiana Inc. for final selection.

A total of 143 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships were awarded as part of the statewide Lilly Endowment initiative, which has awarded 4,340 scholarships and $372 million since 1998.
