The University of Louisville has received gifts totaling $6 million to boost student scholarships.

Half of the amount comes from the Henry Vogt Foundation and its president, Henry Heuser Jr., and the rest comes from matching gifts from other donors. Top UofL officials announced the new gifts at a campus event on Tuesday.

As a result of the Vogt gift, UofL's Hallmark scholars program is being renamed the Henry Vogt Scholarships.

Kentucky students with a 3.75 GPA in high school and scores of at least 30 on the ACT or 1320 on the SAT are eligible to apply for the awards, which include full tuition and an annual $3,500 educational allowance.

The gifts are part of UofL's capital campaign aimed at raising $1 billion by July 2014. The campaign has passed the $750 million mark.
