Schools Receive Share of $9M From Lilly Endowment

Posted: Updated:

More than $9 million from Lilly Endowment Inc. will be divided up among 284 school districts and charter schools throughout the state. The planning grants represent the first phase of the Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students.

Schools will use grants ranging from $8,300 to $50,000 on data collection, assessment and community engagement. The next phase will involve proposals for implementation, which will be part of a competitive process for grants ranging from $100,000 to $3 million.

Vice President For Education Sara Cobb says "the Endowment is very encouraged by the response to the request for planning grants. The number of proposals received exceeded our estimates, which indicates that schools across Indiana want their counseling programs to be as effective as possible. They recognize the importance of counseling to students’ future success and quality of life. The Endowment is committing funds to this initiative because Indiana needs to increase significantly the number of K-12 students who are emotionally healthy, can realize academic success and graduate from high school."
