Louis E. Barrilleaux Scholarships for Alpha Sigma Lambda Members

The Louis E. Barrilleaux Scholarships are funded by the Davenport Family Fund, an endowed fund created through the generosity of the late Joseph W. Davenport, Jr., SoPA ’66. Davenport was inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda as an undergraduate. A strong proponent of lifelong learning, Davenport subsequently earned an MBA from Loyola University and a JD from the University of Georgia. The scholarships are named in honor of the late University College Dean Louis E. Barrilleaux, who served as dean from 1981 to 1996. Additional gifts from Davenport and Barrilleaux’s friends and family and SoPA alumni continue to support the scholarship fund.

To be eligible, students must be continuing members of Alpha Sigma Lambda, the national honor society for part-time college students, or newly invited to join ASL. Number and amount of scholarships awarded varies each year, with the average award totaling $1,000. Recipients will be notified via their Tulane email addresses. Scholarship funds will be posted to the recipient’s Tulane account. Overall academic merit, earned credit hours at School of Professional Advancement, and the quality of each applicant’s written personal statement are factored into the selection committee’s decision.

This is a spring semester award. A brief application form is required.
