The scholarship application deadline is December 15, 2017.
Woodford R. Porter Scholarship
Black/African American Students with 3.0 GPA and 20 ACT
The Woodford R. Porter Scholarship was named after the former trustee, Woodford R. Porter Sr., known for his dedication to strong advocacy for education in Louisville, KY. His famous saying was "education is the great equalizer," as he believed it to be the ultimate path towards self and collective improvement. This scholarship annually provides over 200 Black/African American students with a variety of awards ranging from $2,000 to full in-state tuition, plus a stipend to cover room, food and book expenses. Learn more about the Woodford R. Porter Scholarship.
While consideration for this scholarship typically requires a 3.0 GPA and 20 ACT, please nominate students with scores as low as a 2.9 GPA and an 18 ACT.
Martin Luther King Scholars Program
Black/African American or Hispanic/Latino Students with 3.5 GPA and 26 ACT or 1240 SAT
The Martin Luther King Scholars participate in an engaging leadership development program while enrolled at the University of Louisville.

In addition to a specialized academic track and other unique opportunities, the program provides full in-state tuition plus an $8,000 stipend to cover other university expenses.  Learn more about the MLK Scholars Program and criteria for consideration.
While consideration for this program typically requires a 3.5 GPA and 26 ACT or 1240 SAT, please nominate students with scores as low as 3.4 GPA and 24 ACT or 1160 SAT.
