Scholarships Available


We are looking for bright, motivated Southern California students who, having their choice of any school in the US, would rather go to UofL than anywhere else.  If that’s the case, we can make it easier for them to do it.

 Our local club has scholarship money available for students eager to attend a nationally recognized research and teaching institution.  Here is some information you can share with bright high school students interested in attending school at Louisville.   

  • University of Louisville offers a guaranteed $10,000 annual scholarship for out-or-state students who meet minimum requirements of a 26 ACT or 1170 SAT (CR + M) and a 3.35 GPA.  (Students below minimums may be considered for lesser awards.)

  • All of this is before we consider the UofL Club of Socal Scholarship - see below!

You can see from the table that this could drop per-semester tuition to under $7,500  before room, board and books.  Given Louisville’s high academic standards and low cost of living, this is a DEAL.   Please know that our scholarship is in no way related to any NCAA anything!  If you know of any NCAA athletes, please go directly to the school office or contact me and I’ll direct you there.   (The NCAA requirements are a minefield, and you could inadvertently commit a violation.)   

Please note that there are other out-of-state scholarships in limited numbers available for exceptional students.  If your ACT is over 31, you can find out more about all of your scholarship options if you  go here

As you can imagine, there is fine print.  If you want to know more, please contact Joseph Willenbrink ( or Bob Hoertz (, and we’ll hook you up!

But Wait!!  There's More!!!!

The University of Louisville Los Angeles/Southern California Alumni Club William G. Caldwell Scholarship

Who's Eligible?

We are looking for Southern California residents who wish to attend The University of Louisville.  Any Southern California High School Senior, or Southern California Student currently enrolled at UofL is eligible to apply.  All students who meet the requirements (look a couple rows down) may be considered for this merit based scholarship.


How Much?

Up to $4,000 per year.  Typical award is $2,000 per year.  Amount depends upon merit, number of awardees and upon funds available.



A cumulative GPA 0f 3.0 (B Average) or better on a 4.0 scale in high school or previous college.


How to apply?

Begin by sending a letter to Scholarship Chairman Bob Hoertz.  An email is a good idea, but we strongly recommend a follow-up by US mail.  We can't be responsible for dropped emails, emails caught in the spam-catcher, etc.  Let Bob know what you like about UofL, why you'd like to go there, and why you deserve a scholarship.  Include a copy of your transcript (an unofficial copy is just fine!) While you don't want to be a pain in the neck, it's a good idea to follow up; which Bob will interpret as enthusiasm.  (If you are overdoing it, he'll let you know!)
