If you qualify for the Regional Scholars Program, you will be notified following your admission to the University of Louisville. No separate application is required. Please note:
- UofL only accepts the highest composite ACT or SAT.
- UofL accepts weighted GPAs if available from high school.
- If you increase your ACT/SAT score or GPA to move into a new scholarship award level, UofL will increase your award until May 1.
- After May 1, you may appeal for an increased award if your profile improves. Late admission applicants may also appeal for an award after May 1.
- Students planning to participate in UofL Division 1 sports programs are encouraged to check with coaches for additional requirements.
- The Regional Scholars Award cannot be combined with either the Grawemeyer Scholarship, Brown Fellows Program or National Merit finalist scholarship.
