These scholarships provide financial assistance to students of superior academic ability and achievement. Scholarships are limited to entering first-year students who, in the judgment of the Scholarship Committee, are most deserving of assistance based upon academic merit.
A student is evaluated based on a comprehensive review of his/her high school academic record including grades and course selection. This academic scholarship candidate typically has achieved a consistent A — A+ average while pursuing the most demanding curriculum available at his/her school while exploring various opportunities outside of the classroom. SAT/ACT scores are not required for consideration but will be reviewed if provided by the applicant. Financial need is not considered in awarding Presidential Scholarships. To be considered for a Presidential Scholarship, a student must apply for admission to Loyola by January 15.
All Presidential Scholarships are awarded for four years provided the student maintains the term and cumulative GPA requirements stated at the time of admission. Additional information and required retention criteria for Presidential Scholarships for the Class of 2023 can be found online at www.loyola.edu/presidential-scholarship-faq.
