Eli Lilly and Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana, US, have announced a new scholarship programme, known as Lilly Scholars @ Ivy Tech, which aims to support first generation students, and students who faced socioeconomic barriers, in pursuing credentials in quality, pharmaceutical manufacturing or similar industries.

This programme is expected to help around 1,000 Ivy Tech students, or Lilly Scholars, with financial assistance as well as experiential learning opportunities including summer programmes and work study programmes. It is also planned for the partnership to build the Lilly Smart Manufacturing Lab, where customised education and training for Lilly Scholars will take place. This facility will provide Ivy Tech with manufacturing certification and two-year manufacturing degree options.
