Buying UofL license plates helps students
You've probably seen the University of Louisville license plate. Maybe you have one because you want to show your support for the university.
When you buy a UofL license plate, however, you do more than show your support to UofL. You also help students.
A portion of the cost of each plate benefits UofL scholarships. Since 1999, the Hallmark Scholars program and the Alumni Association Scholarship program have received $952,705 from license plate sales.
That means we have been able to help stop the “brain drain” from Kentucky to other states. The Hallmark Scholars program is designed to encourage Kentucky’s most qualified students to remain in-state for their education, which means they are more likely to live and work in Kentucky than if they went elsewhere for their education.
When it is time to renew your vehicle registration, I urge all faculty and staff to consider purchasing a UofL plate in support of student scholarships and Kentucky’s future.
