Welcome

Due to the number of public school sickout days, the counselor portion of the Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program® has been extended to April 12.  Parents and students will still need to ensure their applications are submitted by the March 31 deadline.

Lincoln Foundation has moved!  The address of our new office location is

4322 Bishop Lane, Louisville, KY 40218


Lincoln Foundation has empowered disadvantaged youth to overcome adversity through education since its inception by Berea College over 100 years ago.   Our primary purpose is to holistically develop students in a culture that stresses academic achievement and graduation from college.  It is our belief that students can break the cycle of poverty in their families through higher education. Lincoln Foundation annually serves approximately 600 students from two years of age through college with its year-round, nontraditional educational enrichment programs.
