Financial Assistance

According to the University’s Financial Aid Office, more than 75% of U of L students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or work/study programs.  All students applying for federal and state aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available through the University of Louisville's Financial Aid Office.

In addition to the awards offered by the University of Louisville, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering has a generous scholarship program specifically designed to help students and their families offset the costs involved with achieving a quality engineering education.
