You'll also be entered to win one of two $500 scholarships for Spring 2018, which will be drawn as early as December 2017 and as late as January 2018. 

Spring 2018 CARDS Event Attendance Requirements

The Spring 2018 minimum attendance is 10 CARDS Events, including 2 designated Book-in-Common events. An event must be designated as a CARDS Event in order to count toward these minimums.

Scholarship awards can be combined with other institutional aid up to the university’s total standard direct cost of attendance plus a stipend. Items in the standard direct cost include regular on-campus tuition, average room, average board, and average book costs. The University of Louisville is required to adhere to all federal, state, and institutional guidelines. If your aid package is adjusted as a result, you will receive notification in your university email. Policy information is available on-line at louisville.edu/financialaid.
