2017 Lilly Scholar – Katie Hunger

Katie Hunger
2017 graduate, Scottsburg High School
2021 graduate, DePauw University, with a degree in English Literature

?In September, I was offered a full-time position with Independent Colleges of Indiana as a scholarship and grants associate. In this role I?m able to continue my work with the Lilly Scholars Network, as well as work to support Indiana?s 29 private colleges and universities through a number of scholarship and grant programs, including the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program.

It?s been interesting to learn more about how the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program works, and affirming as I?ve been able to see more widely the impact of this scholarship.

Just last month we welcomed 2022 Lilly Scholars to our network of more than 5,000 scholars, and I?m so excited to be working behind the scenes to support them as they begin their time at college.?
