Kentucky & Southern Indiana Scholarships

For the Fall 2021 admission cycle, the University of Louisville is committed to making scholarship opportunities available to students, whether they apply with or without ACT/SAT scores. As with any year, there are limited scholarship funds.

Admission-Based Scholarships

The University of Louisville guarantees Admission-Based Scholarships until May 1, 2021 for students entering UofL in the fall. We will accept scores for tests taken over the summer.

The scholarship amounts listed are available for students entering in Fall 2021.
