All 2023 Lilly Scholars are invited to attend Lilly Scholars Launch at Bradford Woods on June 16 & 17 for a fun-filled 24 hours.

Scholars will hear from WNBA phenom & humanitarian Tamika Catchings, learn more about the Lilly Scholars Network, get to know other Lilly Scholars, and enjoy the outdoors summer camp style. Did we mention attendees will be bunking together in cabins?

Have questions? Contact Katie Hunger, LSN Strategic Communication & Operations associate, at or call 317.616.3554.

This opportunity is free to scholars thanks to the generous support of Lilly Endowment, Inc.

If the cost of travel is a barrier to your participation, please let us know as we have some funds set aside to help cover travel reimbursement.
