Join us for the 2018 lilly scholars
network (LSN) Summit: INFUSE!
At this year's Lilly Scholars Network Summit, we aim to INfuse scholarship recipients with the desire and opportunity to connect, serve their community and collaborate to improve the lives of Hoosiers.
All current and alumni recipients of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship are invited to attend this free event hosted by the Lilly Scholars Network at Independent Colleges of Indiana in downtown Indianapolis on Saturday, July 28. Attendees will receive a LSN t-shirt and also enjoy a light breakfast and lunch as part of the event. Please note that space is limited so reserve your spot soon!
We are requesting that each attendee bring a new or gently used backpack to donate to a student in need. These will be used by students in grades 4-12, and will be needed for our morning service project.

We look forward to seeing you on July 28!
