Price Foster retired! That was big news for his family.

Professor Foster's career at U of L began in 1981. One of his enduring contributions to the university was the International Service Learning Program (ISLP) which was established in 1996. Foster helped establish and shape this interdisciplinary program and supported it with countless international trips. No doubt many students traveled to Belize, the Philippines, or Botswana to learn and serve developing communities because of his encouragment and support.

To honor J. Price Foster's career, his family has created the J Price Foster Scholarship Fund at the University of Louisville. This fund will provide ISLP scholarships for students with financial need, giving preference to those in Justice Administration.

The family of Price Foster invites you to contribute to this fund as a way to honor their father, his career, and his legacy of wholeheartedly supporting students. You may donate online at FundforUofL or by mailing in the attached form. Please mark your donation for E2080­ J Price Foster Family Fund.

Your support of this scholarship is greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,    Jamie Foster, Kimberley Foster Evans  & Susan Foster Squires
