To participate, students must live in a public housing development or receive Section 8 assistance from the Louisville Metro Housing Authority. Scholarships are awarded* based upon a student's GPA (grade point average), financial need, other financial aid, written essay response and an interview process. College students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA and must be enrolled as a full-time student.
Due to the difficulties public housing residents and housing choice voucher recipients may be experiencing in preparing their 2020 Louisville Metro Housing Authority Scholarship applications, LMHA has shortened the application and will review all applications as received with decisions to award made within ten (10) calendar days. The sooner an application is received, the sooner the funding decision can be made.
The 2020 application submission period is now closedTo request an application, contact Connie Simrell at Simrell@LMHA1.org or call (502) 569-3439. You may also access the application online by clicking the link below.
