by STEM Scouts



The Crossroads of America Council has secured a generous grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. for use toward STEM Scouts and many other Boy Scouts of America initiatives in the Indianapolis area. We would like to thank and congratulate Lilly Endowment on becoming a Chartered Organization.

“Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc. has awarded $5.8 million to the Boy Scouts of America, Crossroads of America Council. The central Indiana organization will use the funding to boost multiple initiatives, including a new co-ed program called STEM Scouts.

STEM Scouts involves students ranging from third grade through senior year working one-on-one with educators and experts to provide “real experiences” in science, technology, engineering and math fields.”
