University Honors Program Etscorn Scholarship

Academic scholarships having a value up to $5,000 are announced for the 2011-2012 academic year. These scholarships are funded through generous donations by the Etscorn Foundation.


To be eligible for a scholarship a student must have completed 24 credit hours at the University of Louisville by May 2011. An eligible student must be currently enrolled full- or part-time at the University of Louisville; be planning to enroll full-time in the 2011-2012 academic year; be pursuing her/his first undergraduate degree; have a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 3.35 (including U of L courses, transfer work, and repeat grades); and not hold another full-tuition scholarship, such as a Trustees or Hallmark scholarship or award. Out-of-state students are encouraged to apply. Please note that the Etscorn Scholarships are competitively renewable.


Scholarship awards will be based on the strength of a student’s (1) transcript, (2) personal statement, (3) Honors record, and (4) two letters of recommendation. Your personal statement, not to exceed two typed pages, should address educational goals, the extent of involvement in the Honors Program, campus and community activities, and, in particular, the ways in which the award of a scholarship would enhance your academic experience. An application missing any of the above four components is considered incomplete and will not be reviewed by the selection committee.  Applications are available online here.


Completed applications are due end of March/early April 2014.  Please see the CURRENT newsletter for deadline date.  Applications should be returned to the Etscorn Honors Center or mailed to:


Dr. John Richardson, Director

Applications consist of a letter outlining your academic program, overall financial need, and projected expenses of books for the spring semester. Send your letters to Dr. John Richardson, University Honors Program. Deadline is in mid-October.
