Hendrix Lilly Service Fellowships

Would you like to spend your summer in a place of special interest to you doing service work?  Service Fellowships provide students who have completed their sophomore or junior year with the opportunity of doing intensive summer service with non-profit organizations and churches in the United States or abroad. The purpose of the recipient's summer work should be tri-fold: to help where there is need, to learn from those in need, and to grow in vocational self-understanding.  Service Fellowship awards are for up to $4,000 and may be used to cover such things as travel, living expenses, and lost summer income.  Applications are ready!  You can pick up an application in Mills 306 or go to

Hendrix-Lilly Undergrad Research Scholarships

How about spending your summer researching a topic related to vocation?  Hendrix-Lilly Undergrad Research Scholarships support student research, in the summer prior to the senior year, on issues related to vocation and discernment. Such research may include, but is not restricted to, the study of issues relevant to a church vocation. Though working with service organizations may be involved, the focus of a Research Scholarship should be upon academic research resulting in a major paper for public presentation. These awards are for up to $4,000 and may be used to cover such things as travel, living expenses, and lost summer income.  Applications are ready!  You can pick up an application in Mills 306 or go to
