The Kim and Harold Louie Family Foundation Scholarship Program

The Kim and Harold Louie Family Foundation (the "Foundation") anticipates awarding approximately $100,000 in scholarships this year. The Foundation intends to set the number of actual scholarships and the amount of an individual scholarship based on a consideration of certain factors, including without limitation, the financial resources and the qualifications of the scholarship recipients.


This scholarship is for high school seniors and students who will be attending a college, university or vocational school in the United States as a freshman during the coming academic year. Applicants should have demonstrated outstanding personal achievements, academic merit, leadership qualities and/or community service. Special consideration will be noted for applicants:
- with a demonstrated financial need
- with parents who did not attend college
- with a documented disability
- who have overcome significant adversity
- who have parents that are United States veterans or are currently in the U.S. military

To be considered for this scholarship, an applicant is required to:
- Be currently a high school senior in good standing and anticipate enrolling at a U.S. accredited college/university or vocational program in the upcoming academic year as a freshman
- Have a minimum, cumulative, unweighted grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent); students not on a 4.0 grading scale must convert their GPA to a 4.0 scale before submitting an application to the Foundation
- Have a minimum SAT score of 1800 (out of 2400) or a minimum ACT score of 27
- Have at least two reference letters, one of which must be from a current or former teacher in an academic subject
- Submit personal statements as further described in this packet
- Have applied to a U.S. college/university or vocational program, either full-time or substantial part-time, and plan to enroll in a minimum of two terms for the school year (verified by submitting a copy of the acceptance letter from the college or university as soon such acceptance letter is available)
- Submit to interviews in person or by phone, if requested

**This year, the Foundation is trying to reduce the amount of paper used. Therefore, we would prefer that applicants submit a PDF or Word version of their application. We would prefer that applicants download the PDF version of the recommendation form and email the form directly to the two people providing the recommendations. Those recommenders can then complete the forms and submit the recommendation forms directly to the Foundation. All supplemental application materials, including transcripts, standardized test scores, tax forms, and proof of citizenship/legal residency, may be scanned and submitted to the Foundation. Alternatively, you can mail paper copies of those documents to the Foundation. If you are unable to use the PDF version of the application, you may submit an application on paper. For your convenience, we also make available for download a version of the application form in Microsoft Word.**

by Suada Kolovic
