(BEDFORD) - The 36th Lawrence County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship winners will now be named early in December.

Previous scholarship recipients were named in March of the year they graduated from high school. The change affects the program for all Indiana community foundations.

The foundation will make Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications for 2017 graduates available online in early August. Completed applications will be due to the community foundation sometime in September. The dates will be announced to high school guidance offices when school resumes in August.

The Community Foundation CEO Hope Flores says the new award date is the result of a "compelling recommendation" from community foundations who participated in a statewide evaluation of the program conducted by Lilly Endowment in 2015. During the evaluation process, a number of community foundations suggested that identifying Lilly Scholars earlier in the school year would give more time for them to decide which college or university to attend.
