The deadline for scholarship application has been extended to March 17. UL Lafayette’s Scholarship department will review all applications and narrow it down to the top 15 – 20 students who will be interviewed by a committee of local community leaders who will then choose four deserving recipients.
The chosen students may use the $10,000 to pursue any major offered at UL Lafayette. The $10,000 Pay-It-Forward Scholarship Program of Excellence was established in 2010. These scholarships are given annually to at-risk young men or women who display the spirit, work ethic and character that is deserving of a chance for a better future. The scholarships are awarded by an independent panel of community leaders based on a combination of attributes including: student performance, drive, ability, need and desire to seek a college degree.
