U of L Departmental Awards

General Information

Departments within the University administer their own scholarship/assistantship/fellowship programs. Some departments are responsible for posting funds directly to a student's financial aid package and some departments submit funding requests to the Student Financial Aid Office for processing.

Departmental awards apply to student financial aid packages and are counted as financial assistance. If scholarship exceeds financial need and/or cost of attendance, adjustments will be made to the student aid package to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations. Self-help aid, such as loans and work-study awards, are adjusted before grant or scholarship aid is affected. If an overaward occurs after aid disburses, the student may be required to repay all or a portion of their financial aid to the University.

After a department submits a funding request  to the Student Financial Aid Office the average processing time is up to five business days. During high volume periods the average processing time is up to seven business days.

Note: University departments establish stipulations for all departmental scholarship/assistantship/fellowship programs and terms vary depending on each program. If you have questions regarding your departmental funds and/or are expecting department funding and funds have not posted to your student account, please contact the department to verify the status of your award.

      Admission Based Scholarships

      There are three main Admission Based Scholarship programs: Trustees, Porter and National Scholar awards.   Students who have been awarded a University of Louisville renewable Trustees or Porter award must maintain the requirements and expectations of the awarded scholarship.  Students awarded the National Scholar award can refer to the National Scholar requirements and expectations. Students who do not maintain the scholarship requirements have an opportunity to appeal.  For common questions and answers regarding the appeal process, visit the Scholarship Appeals: Q & A webpage.

      Students who have previously lost a scholarship due to not meeting eligibility requirements may qualify for scholarship reinstatement.  Students who regain eligibility by the end of the spring term may  request consideration of scholarship reinstatement by submitting the reinstatement form by June 1st. The student's eligibility will be reviewed and if all requirements are met, the scholarship will be considered for reinstatement for the following academic year. Reinstatement forms will be made available by May and must be returned to the Student Financial Aid Office by June 1.

      Students awarded a Trustees First Year Scholarship are not eligible for scholarship renewal in subsequent years.  Before a student's Trustees First Year Scholarship has expired, they can consider applying for the Continuing Undergraduate Academic Scholarship.

      If a student must leave the university due to special circumstances they may be eligible for a leave of absence from their scholarship. If there are unique circumstances that require students to take a break from college attendance and they are receiving a Trustees, Porter, or National Scholar award  a leave of absence request must be submitted. All requests will be reviewed and, if approved, a leave of absence for scholarship purposes will be granted. Not all requests for a leave of absence will be approved.

Students already receiving a full-time renewable University scholarship (like Trustees, Porter, and National Scholars Award) are not eligible to participate in this program. Awards are based on funds available and enrollment of 12.0 credit hours or more. Students enrolled between 6.0 and 11.0 credit hours will have their award reduced. Students enrolled for less than 6.0 credit hours are not eligible.

      Checks and/or documentation should include student name, student identification number, and award period, e.g. fall only or fall and spring. If an outside organization does not specify an award period, funds will be evenly distributed between fall and spring semester if check is made payable for $1,000 or more or applied to the current semester if check is made payable for less than $1,000.

      Outside scholarship funds apply to student financial aid packages and are counted as financial assistance. If outside scholarship exceeds financial need and/or cost of attendance, adjustments will be made to the student’s aid package to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations. Self-help aid, such as loans and work-study awards, are adjusted before grant or scholarship aid is affected. If an overaward occurs after aid has been disbursed, the student may be required to repay all or a portion of their financial aid to the University.

      The average processing time is up to seven business days and up to ten business days during high volume times. If you are expecting a scholarship from an outside organization and the scholarship has not posted to your student account, contact the outside organization to verify when the funds will be sent to the Student Financial Aid Office.

      Please do not send payments for the upcoming academic year prior to March.

      Overaward & Stacking Policies

      Overaward Policy

      An overaward is financial aid that exceeds a student’s financial need and/or cost of attendance. When a student receives aid, the University of Louisville is required to adhere to all regulations associated. All aid, including scholarships, grants, loans, tuition remission, awards, and prizes must be counted as estimated financial assistance in a student’s total aid package.

      It is the student’s responsibility to report all sources of estimated financial assistance including departmental scholarships, employee tuition remission, outside scholarships, third party assistance, and Metropolitan College benefits, to the Student Financial Aid Office. To report estimated financial assistance not already included in your aid package, complete the Report Other Aid form. Reporting this information to the Student Financial Aid Office early will help prevent changes in eligibility that can result in reductions to financial aid.

      When the Student Financial Aid Office identifies an overaward, adjustments will be made to the student’s aid package to ensure compliance with regulations. When allowable, self-help aid, such as loans and work-study awards, are adjusted before grant or scholarship aid is affected. If an overaward occurs after aid has been disbursed, the student may be required to repay all or a portion of their financial aid to the University.

      Undergraduate Stacking Policy

      The sum of all institutional aid received cannot exceed the  university’s total standard direct cost of attendance plus a stipend. Items in the standard direct cost include regular on-campus tuition charges*, average room**, average board***, and average book costs***.


      For the 2017-2018 academic year, the stacking limit is $22,164 for residents and $37,046 for non-residents.

      The following chart shows the stacking limit with  2017-2018 academic year costs.

      Any funding paid by the University of Louisville may be considered institutional aid. Some examples are admission-based scholarships, departmental awards, employee tuition remission, housing benefits, KRS benefits, and athletic scholarships.  Additional costs, on a case-by-case basis, may be factored in the stacking limit when a student participates in a university-approved study abroad program.   The University of Louisville reserves the right to adjust institutional scholarship awards when a student’s total institutional aid exceeds the designated limit.

      There are three main Admission Based Scholarship programs: Trustees, Porter and National Scholar awards.   Students who have been awarded a University of Louisville renewable Trustees or Porter award must maintain the requirements and expectations of the awarded scholarship.  Students awarded the National Scholar award can refer to the National Scholar requirements and expectations. Students who do not maintain the scholarship requirements have an opportunity to appeal.  For common questions and answers regarding the appeal process, visit the Scholarship Appeals: Q & A webpage.

      Students who have previously lost a scholarship due to not meeting eligibility requirements may qualify for scholarship reinstatement.  Students who regain eligibility by the end of the spring term may  request consideration of scholarship reinstatement by submitting the reinstatement form by June 1st. The student's eligibility will be reviewed and if all requirements are met, the scholarship will be considered for reinstatement for the following academic year. Reinstatement forms will be made available by May 1 and must be returned to Lindsay Driskell in the Student Financial Aid Office by June 1.

      Students awarded a Trustees First Year Scholarship are not eligible for scholarship renewal in subsequent years.  Before a student's Trustees First Year Scholarship has expired, they can consider applying for the Continuing Undergraduate Academic Scholarship.

      If a student must leave the university due to special circumstances they may be eligible for a leave of absence from their scholarship. If there are unique circumstances that require students to take a break from attendance and they are receiving a Trustees, Porter, or National Scholar award  a 2013-2014 leave of absence request must be submitted. All requests will be reviewed and, if approved, a leave of absence for scholarship purposes will be granted. Not all requests for a leave of absence will be approved. These requests must be submitted to Lindsay Driskell in the Student Financial Aid Office.

      Continuing Undergraduate Academic Scholarship

      A limited number of the Continuing Undergraduate Academic Scholarships are available for undergraduate students seeking their first bachelor's degree at the University of Louisville.  Students must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA at the University of Louisville and at least 24, but not more than 144, credit hours to qualify.

      Students may apply if they currently do not have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or at least 24 credit hours, but anticipate meeting those requirements by the end of the spring term in which they submit the application. Students already receiving a full-time renewable University scholarship (like Trustees, Porter, and National Scholars Award) are not eligible to participate in this program. Awards are based on funds available and enrollment of 12.0 credit hours or more. Students enrolled between 6.0 and 11.0 credit hours will have their award reduced. Students enrolled for less than 6.0 credit hours are not eligible. Continuing U of L students wanting consideration for the Continuing Student Scholarship must apply through the directions outlined below.

      The deadline to apply is March 15th prior to the next academic school year. Applications are available on ULink beginning January 1st. Students need to do the following in order to apply:

      1. Login to ULink
      2. Click on the Student Services tab
      3. Click on Apply for Continuing Undergrad Scholarship under the Financial Aid section
      4. Click Apply Now (Application is Submitted)

      No additional information is required and students will be notified following the spring term.

      Trustees and Porter - Requirements and Expectations

      Being a scholarship student at the University of Louisville brings with it a number of responsibilities. The following is a list of expectations for you as a scholarship student.

      Grades

      As a scholarship student, it is your responsibility to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, unless your Scholarship Terms of Agreement indicates otherwise.

      Your cumulative GPA is reviewed once a year, at the end of the spring semester. If you do not meet the GPA requirements at the end of any spring semester, you will not receive your scholarship for the following academic year.

      Scholarship eligibility is always based on your cumulative GPA at the end of the spring semester. Your cumulative GPA is not reviewed after the summer or fall terms, therefore, improving your GPA during the summer and/or fall terms will not result in immediate eligibility for the reinstatement of your scholarship.

      Enrollment

      All scholarship students are expected to enroll full-time each fall and spring semester. Currently, a full course load for an undergraduate student is considered to be 12 or more credit hours. A full course load for a graduate student is considered to be 9 or more credit hours.

      Students who participate in cooperative programs (co-ops) during the fall and spring semesters may be eligible to receive scholarship funding at the full-time amount. All Speed School co-op students are considered to be full-time for financial aid purposes. Students enrolling in co-ops found in other academic units should contact that unit for guidance about full-time status.

      If a student must leave the university due to special circumstances they may be eligible for a leave of absence from their scholarship. If there are unique circumstances that require students to take a break from college attendance and they are receiving a Trustees or Porter award a leave of absence request must be submitted. These requests must be submitted to Rachel Kirk in the Student Financial Aid Office.

      Please be aware that the amount of your scholarship does not increase if you choose to enroll in Distance Education coursework at the University of Louisville.  Be sure to review the charges related to Distance Education coursework and the amount of your scholarship carefully before making a decision to enroll in an online course. 

      Attending Summer School

      Scholarship funds are not available during summer semesters, with the exception of first-year Speed School students. Speed School students are required to be enrolled full-time in the summer following their first year of enrollment. First-year Speed School students will automatically be awarded their scholarships for the summer semester regardless of cumulative GPA. Speed School students are not eligible for funding during subsequent summer semesters of their academic programs. Scholarship funding received during fall and spring co-op semesters should be saved and used for expenses during the summer semesters.

      Graduation

      Scholarships are given to students for eight semesters, or eleven semesters for those seeking a degree in engineering, with the expectation that the student will graduate during that time. You should schedule your classes appropriately. After you have used your semesters of eligibility, your scholarship will end and you will be billed accordingly.

      Appeals

      Students who do not meet the GPA requirements or need additional semesters of eligibility can file an 2016-2017 Scholarship Appeal. The Student Financial Aid Office will communicate with you via e-mail regarding your status at the conclusion of the spring semester. Be sure to check your university e-mail account frequently. Do not, however, rely solely on our e-mail notification. You are ultimately responsible for checking to determine whether or not you meet the conditions for the renewal of your scholarship.

      The appeal deadline is June 1st each year.  Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is also required.  FAFSA data must be on file in the Student Financial Aid Office by the appeal deadline.  Appeals require extensive documentation of your unusual circumstances, and should be completed with as much detail as possible. All appeals should be addressed to the Scholarship Appeals Committee and submitted directly to the Student Financial Aid Office.

      Questions

      If you have any questions or need assistance, you are always welcome to email the Student Financial Aid Office at finaid@louisville.edu, call our help line at 502-852-5511, or stop by the Houchens Building, Room 110.

      Trustees and Porter: Appeal Q & A

      1. Why would a student need to submit an appeal?

      Scholarship students who do not earn a cumulative 3.0 GPA (or other GPA as indicated on the scholarship terms of agreement) can submit an appeal. Students who have used eight semesters of scholarship eligibility (or eleven semesters if in the Speed School of Engineering) can submit an appeal to request  additional semesters of eligibility.

      Scholarship students should check their university e-mail account frequently. The Student Financial Aid Office will communicate with scholarship students via e-mail after the conclusion of the spring semester. Students should not, however, rely solely on an e-mail notification. Scholarship students are ultimately responsible for checking to determine whether or not they meet the conditions for scholarship renewal.

      2. When should a student submit an appeal?

      The deadline is June 1st every year. Appeals should be submitted after the spring grades have posted, but before June 1st. Appeal forms will be available on our website by May 1st.

      3. What is required for an appeal?

      1. An appeal form. It is available on the Student Financial Aid Office's website in May each year.
      2. A typewritten letter that explains the unusual circumstances that prevented you from meeting the renewal criteria.
      3. Supporting documentation. This must be provided in order to receive full consideration of your appeal. Please do not submit the original documentation, but submit copies. Examples of documentation are as follows: doctor's statement, medical bills, and/or letter of support from an objective third-party.
      4. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your FAFSA data must be on file in the Student Financial Aid Office by the appeal deadline of June 1st. The Student Financial Aid Office does not receive this data immediately and if you have not completed this step prior to May 15, attach a copy of your confirmation and summary page.

       

      4. Where do I turn in my completed appeal?

      All appeal forms must be submitted to the Student Financial Aid Office. All appeal documents must be on file in the financial aid office by June 1st.  Do not submit any portion of the appeal to another office.  No exceptions are made to this policy.

      The Student Financial Aid Office’s mailing address is:

      University of Louisville Student Financial Aid Office
      Attn: Scholarship Appeals Committee
      Houchens Building, Room 110
      Louisville, KY 40292

      5. How do I find out the results of my appeal?

      Students are notified of appeal results via e-mail. Decisions will be sent to students’ university e-mail accounts by June 15th.

      6. What are some valid reasons for appeal approval?

      Appeal decisions are based on individual circumstances and available funding after those who meet the automatic renewal criteria are awarded. Examples of unusual circumstances regarding GPA requirements include any issue that hindered academic performance.

      Examples of unusual circumstances for extensions include any issue that contributed to the length of the program.


      7. Who makes the decision on appeals?

      The Scholarship Appeals Committee, consisting of at least six University employees from various offices, will work together to review appeals. Decisions are recommended to the Director of Student Financial Aid.

      8. If my appeal is approved, how much can I expect to receive?

      The funding available for each student with an approved appeal will be determined after the Scholarship Appeals Committee submits their recommendations to the Director of Student Financial Aid. Based on funding levels, the Director determines the amount of scholarship funding available for each approved student.

      9. What happens if my appeal is denied?

      The Student Financial Aid Office will work closely with you. Completion of the FAFSA is required with your appeal. It is strongly recommended that you submit the FAFSA prior to March 15th to ensure that you are considered for all possible sources of aid.

      10. If I raise my cumulative GPA, can I regain my scholarship?

      Students who lose their scholarship will not be automatically renewed, regardless of cumulative GPA. Students who raise their cumulative GPA to meet the scholarship requirements during the summer and/or fall semesters do not regain eligibility for their scholarship immediately.

      At the conclusion of the spring semester, students who have raised their cumulative GPA to the required level should fill out a reinstatement request form no later than June 1st. This form should be sent to the Student Financial Aid Office to the attention of Lindsay Driskell. Forms will be reviewed accordingly and scholarship reinstatements will be processed if eligibility remains.

      11. If I lost my scholarship in a prior year, how can I be reconsidered for scholarship funding?

      Students that did not appeal last year, or did appeal and were denied, can submit an appeal this year. The Scholarship Appeals Committee will review the student cumulative GPA for improvement and any unusual circumstances.

      National Scholars Program Requirements and Expectations

      Being a recipient of a National Scholars award at the University of Louisville brings with it a number of responsibilities.  The following is a list of expectations for you as a scholarship student. 

      Grades

      There is no minimum GPA requirement for National Scholars students.  However, you must be making satisfactory progress in your academic program and you must remain in good standing within the program.

      Enrollment

      All National Scholar students are expected to enroll full time each semester.  Currently, a full course load for an undergraduate student is considered to be 12 or more credit hours.  A full course load for a graduate student is considered to be 9 or more credit hours.

      Students that participate in cooperative programs (co-ops) during the fall and spring semesters may be eligible to receive scholarship funding at the full-time amount.  All Speed School co-op students are considered to be full-time for financial aid programs.  Students enrolling in co-ops found in other academic units should contact that unit for guidance about full-time status.

      If a student must leave the university due to special circumstances they may be eligible for a leave of absence from their scholarship.  In there are unique circumstances that require you to take a break from attendance and you are  receiving a National Scholar award a leave of absence request must be submitted.  The requests must be submitted to the Student Financial Aid Office.

      Attending Summer School

      National Scholar funds are not available during summer semesters, with the exception of first-year Speed School students.  Speed School students are required to be enrolled full-time in the summer following their first year of enrollment.  First-year Speed School students will automatically be awarded their scholarship for the summer semester as long as they are enrolled full time.  Speed School students are not eligible for funding during subsequent summer semesters of their academic programs.  Scholarship funding received during fall and spring co-op semesters should be saved and used for expenses during the summer semesters.

      Graduation

      The National Scholars Award is renewable while the student is pursuing their first bachelor’s degree and making satisfactory progress in their academic program.  Once a student completes their first bachelor’s degree, they are no longer eligible for the award.  An exception to this is students enrolled in Speed School.  Due to the nature of the program, the award will include the additional semesters for the Master’s of Engineering.

      Questions

      If you have any questions or need assistance, you are always welcome to email the Student Financial Aid Office, call our help line at 502-852-5511, or stop by the Houchens Building, Room 110.
