Kentucky & Southern Indiana Scholarships

For the Fall 2022 admission cycle, the University of Louisville is committed to making scholarship opportunities available to students, whether they apply with or without ACT/SAT scores. Admitted students will begin receiving notification of their awards in September 2021.

Admission-Based Scholarships

We strongly encourage students with qualifying ACT/SAT scores to submit those to automatically receive their award. All students accepted without test scores and a 3.5 weighted GPA will be considered for scholarships ranging from $2,500-$5,000.  Awards will be based on a comprehensive review of the high school transcript including grades and curriculum, particularly college preparatory courses. Select students receiving scholarships without test scores will be invited to compete for enhancements to their initial award. 

Kentucky and Southern Indiana students* who meet the minimum criteria will automatically receive awards following admission to UofL. No scholarship application is required

The University of Louisville guarantees Admission-Based Scholarships until May 1, 2022 for students entering UofL in the fall. 

The scholarship amounts listed are available for students entering in Fall 2022.
