Memorial scholarship established in memory of equine program director



    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville College of Business has established a memorial scholarship in memory of Timothy T. Capps, who died April 22, 2017, following a stroke.

    Capps, 71, a highly regarded consultant in the horse racing industry, had been director of the Equine Industry Program since 2011.

    “Several graduates and graduating seniors suggested creating this scholarship,” said Terri Burch, coordinator of the Equine Industry Program. “Tim loved to teach and he was a favorite of the students. Through this scholarship, we will carry on his legacy here at the University of Louisville.”

    The Timothy T. Capps Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually to one equine business student at UofL who possesses the same positive qualities that Capps exhibited throughout his life – a strong will, a passion for horses and a desire to succeed and learn.

    The award will be $3,000 ($1,500 per semester).

    Applications will be accepted annually from November to January.

    Donations can be sent to:
