The Office of Financial Aid administers a limited number of endowed and privately-funded scholarships that are awarded to qualified members of the sophomore, junior and senior classes. Members of the senior class are given priority in the evaluation process. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.00 to be considered for a scholarship and will be evaluated on their academic performance, co-curricular activities, awards and honors, and other criteria as specified by the donor of the endowed fund or the sponsor of the privately-funded scholarship program. Applicants are normally informed of the Scholarship Committee's decisions during the fall semester.
Students who wish to be considered for a privately-funded or endowed scholarship should complete the General Scholarship Application. Applicants will need their Loyola University username and password to access the application form. Information collected on the application will be used by the Scholarship Committee to match students' characteristics and credentials with scholarship selection criteria. By completing this application, students are certifying that the information provided on this form is true and accurate to the best of their knowledge and are also giving Loyola's Office of Financial Aid permission to share this information with private scholarship providers or endowed scholarship donors.
Note: The receipt of a privately-funded or endowed scholarship may result in an adjustment in your current financial aid package. All scholarship awards must be considered an additional resource in meeting a student's demonstrated financial need. Therefore, it may be necessary to adjust a student's eligibility for Federal Work Study, the Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, Loyola Student Loan, or institutional grant assistance if awarded an endowed or privately-funded scholarship.
