Welcome to Lincoln Foundation Programs Portal!

Lincoln Foundation’s educational programs serve the needs of academically talented, socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Our mission is to provide programs that empower students toward academic achievement and college graduation.

Our signature program is the Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program® which annually admits high potential youth from under-resourced communities throughout the Louisville area.

Students commit to participating in experiential Saturday morning and summer programs that prepare them academically, socially, and emotionally for high school graduation and the rigors of college. Eligible students must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and qualify for free or reduced lunch.
