It is an ongoing priority to provide fair and equitable access to the university by sustaining and expanding scholarship programs for students. To do this, we need your help to fund scholarship initiatives.




Henry Vogt Scholars | Merit-based Scholarships

The Henry Vogt Scholars’ Program exists to retain the best and brightest students in Kentucky and to improve the academic caliber of UofL’s undergraduate program. Vogt Scholars come from every corner of the Commonwealth and represent the most talented high school seniors in the state. The standard of achievement set by Vogt Scholars attracts more outstanding students to the university and raises the value of a UofL degree.


Cardinal Covenant | Need-based Scholarships

To promote equitable access to college, especially for first-generation college students from traditionally neglected communities, UofL’s Cardinal Covenant scholarship program provides full scholarships to Kentucky’s most economically disadvantaged students – families living at or below 150% of the federal poverty level.


Other Scholarship Initiatives

We have many other scholarship programs at UofL that focus on more specific areas based on factors including need, merit, and diversity, among others. Our Trustees' Scholarship program encompasses Eagle Scouts Scholarship, Governor's Scholars Award, Grawemeyer Scholarship, Southern Indiana Scholars, and the Governor's School for the Arts Scholarship. You can designate your philanthropy to various programs including the Grawemeyer Scholarship, Woodford R. Porter Scholarship, Southern Indiana Scholarships, and the National Scholars Program.
