Community Foundation of Louisville Announces Opening of 2022 Scholarship Applications
The Community Foundation of Louisville is proud to hold funds that support the educational dreams of hundreds of students each year. Three new funds that will invite applications for the first time reflect the diversity of scholarship options available.
“Keep Going!” Scholarship Fund, in Honor of Travis Nagdy
Travis Nagdy, a beloved, 21 year-old social justice leader in Louisville, lost his life in late 2020. His optimism, and signature motto “Keep Going!” motivated many during the social justice uprisings in Louisville that year. This scholarship recognizes Travis’ fight for justice, and the continued pursuit of justice by Louisville youth. Established by multiple partners, this fund will help defray college or university expenses for Black students from the Louisville’s West End.
Harold and Mary Snook Scholarship Fund
Mrs. Snook’s personal experience informed the focus of this fund, which seeks out students who are balancing life responsibilities, have financial need, and are pursuing studies in education or any medical field, especially nursing. This fund will look beyond grade point average to understand the full experience of the students who apply.
Robert E. Haire Scholarship Fund
Mr. Haire taught Advanced Placement History at Eastern High School and Fern Creek High School. Started by an anonymous donor in honor of Mr. Haire, this fund seeks to defray college or university expenses for students who excelled in Advanced Placement History class and/or on the Advanced Placement History Test.
On behalf of the many scholarship fund holders, we look forward to learning about you and your educational aspirations!
