Working with Petri DishTwo types of nationally competitive and prestigious awards are available to Loyola seniors: endorsed and direct apply.  Endorsed awards require a nomination from Loyola, while direct apply awards do not.

Applying for an endorsed award begins by filing a letter of intent. The deadline for the letter of intent is particular to Loyola and is always several months before the national deadline set by the awarding agency. See a list of direct apply awards.
