Eli Lilly Scholarship

This year, Eli Lilly and Company, a leading producer of pharmaceuticals, gave out 54 scholarships to people suffering from bipolar disorder schizophrenia, and related disorders. These Reintegration Scholarships help people with diseases of the brain to gain educational and vocational skills that will help them reintegrate into society and regain their lives. Scholarship winners are chosen by and independent panel of nine psychiatric care professionals. The winnings can be used for anything from high school equivalency programs to graduate studies to vocational schools. The program was started in 1997 and has awarded around 700 scholarships. However, this is a small feat for a company who reported profits of $1,810.1 million from the sale of psychotropic drugs and other pharmaceutical products in 2004. We hope they'll increase the amount for the scholarships next year.


Applications for the 2006-2007 Reintegration Scholarship are currently available and will be accepted until January 13, 2006. Find them at


I sent an email to the Eli Lilly scholarship foundation and never received a response.

Hi Shannon - I recommend you send another email, or give them a call. Who knows - their email system could have crashed or something. Keep trying until you get a response.

Will there be any scholarships for 2007, and if so, how can one apply?
