These awards provide financial assistance to applicants from Jesuit high schools who have achieved a strong record of grade performance in a rigorous program of study. Awards are limited to entering freshmen who, in the judgment of the scholarship committee, are most deserving of assistance because of academic talent and credentials.
A student is selected on a competitive basis considering a comprehensive review of his/her high school academic record. SAT/ACT scores are not required for consideration, but will be reviewed if provided by the applicant. Financial need is not considered in awarding Magis Awards. To be considered for a Magis Award, a student must apply for admission to Loyola University by January 15.
All Magis Awards are awarded for four years provided the student maintains the term and cumulative GPA requirements and credit requirements stated in the original award letter.
