UofL receives gift to benefit top achieving students

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The University of Louisville received a $3 million gift to help top achieving students afford tuition and UofL revealed the donation from the Henry Vogt Foundation comes with $3 million in matching gifts from other donors.

Kentucky students who have a 3.75 grade point average and score at least 30 on their ACT are eligible.

Henry V. Heuser Jr. With the Henry Vogt Foundation said, "Hearing the story of the hundreds of really talented high school act scholars coming out of high school that have been accepted into the university but can't attend because of financial needs limits, that really touched our hearts."

"We are especially thrilled about these gifts because they directly impact our students," said UofL President James Ramsey. "We'll be targeting more donations for scholarships in the stretch run of our comprehensive campaign."  

UofL began its current fundraising campaign back in 2007.
