COLUMBIA CITY â€” Remaining steadfast in its belief that education at all levels is indispensable to the personal, civic and economic well-being of Indiana residents and communities, Lilly Endowment will again provide a deserving student from our community with the opportunity to attend four years of college tuition free.
