The Adams County Community Foundation recently announced the 2017 Adams County Lilly Endowment Community Scholar will be named early for graduating seniors. While previous recipients were identified in April of the year they graduated, the upcoming recipients will be named in December 2016. The change affects the program for all Indiana community foundations.
  The foundation will make Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications for 2017 graduates available in early August. Completed applications will be due to the Community Foundation by 4 p.m. Oct. 6. The dates will be announced publicly and to high school guidance offices when school resumes in August.
