Making a Difference One Life at a Time

Scholarship Renewal


A. As a condition of disbursement of the scholarship funds, The Lillis Foundation must first receive the scholar's signed Grant Agreement. A Grant Agreement is issued yearly to students who are receiving Lillis Foundation financial support. Grant Agreements are sent at the beginning of the academic school year. Scholarship funds will not be released until the signed Grant Agreement is received by The Lillis Foundation. In addition to the signed Grant Agreement, scholars agree to provide The Lillis Foundation with the following documents as part of the reporting requirements:

REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

SEMESTER STUDENTS:

  • A brief report indicating the ways in which the scholarship funds were utilized; and
  • A brief report describing progress achieved in attaining educational goals; and
  • A transcript, verified by the school, indicating the courses taken and grades received in each course.

Documentation must be submitted no later than the last calendar day of the year (end of the fall semester) and the last calendar day of May (end of the spring semester)

QUARTER STUDENTS:

  • A brief report indicating the ways in which scholarship funds were utilized; and
  • A brief report describing progress towards achieving educational goals; and
  • A transcript, verified by the school, indicating the courses taken and the grades received in each course.
