Lilly Fellows are students who are actively progressing towards entering professional ministry and able to assist with Lilly Center programs. A student must have already completed the Year of Inquiry program for a minimum of one year and have decided that he/she wants to pursue some form of ministry and is dedicated to the next steps of preparation for the same. They receive a forgivable loan of $2,000 per semester over the life of the award toward their tuition at Catawba College per demonstrated financial need.
Year of Inquiry awards are $1,000 per semester toward Catawba College tuition for qualified students who are interested in the ministry as a career but may still be undecided. Year of Inquiry students meet monthly with a faculty mentor to discuss vocation and the ministry.
