Continuing Student Scholarships 2013-2014
Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors may now submit the Continuing Student Scholarship application. Based on this application, the Financial Aid Office will award scholarships from Loyola University’s endowment to continuing Loyola University Chicago students for the 2013-2014 school year. Our goal is to provide funding to those students who have proven academic success and demonstrated financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Scholarships can range from $1,000 – $5,000 and are restricted to full-time undergraduate students and will disburse in equal amounts between the fall and spring semesters. The application deadline is June 1, 2013.
The Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) is the umbrella under which all funded undergraduate research programs offered at Loyola University Chicago are centralized. The goal of LUROP is to enrich, enhance, diversify, and individualize the learning experiences of undergraduate students. Undergraduate research opportunities are administered by their own center, department, or director, but they are centrally coordinated by the Center for Experiential Learning. Each program is unique, providing students from any school or department with the opportunity to conduct research in their area of interest. For more information, please visit the LUROP website.
The Mighty Quinn Foundation
We are pleased to announce that the Quinn Rooney Foundation (soon to be re-named the Mighty Quinn Foundation) will be funding a scholarship of $5,000 to a student of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts for the academic year 2013-2014. Quinn attended Loyola with the help of a very generous scholarship from the University and he was very proud of this accomplishment. We would like to honor his memory by assisting a student of the theater and performing arts with a scholarship. If you know of someone who could benefit from the scholarship or could benefit from it yourself, please complete the application and submit it to us by July 1, 2012. We will announce the recipient on the web-site shortly thereafter.
You may submit the application to us at Susan@mightyquinnfoundation.com.
For those of you who may want to join us on the East Coast, the Mighty Quinn Foundation will be having its kick off Cook Off on July 6th on the grounds of the Shakespeare Theater in Stratford Connecticut. More information will be posted on the Foundation web-site, as well as on Facebook.
The Fellowship Office assists Loyola undergraduates and recent alumni to apply for national and international fellowships and scholarships, which commonly provide funding for graduate school or study and research overseas. Get more information online.
