Gannon Scholars


The Gannon Scholars Leadership Program is a four-year progressive program that engages students in the development of leadership, service, and research. We are a support system and peer community for personal growth, academic excellence, and commitment to social justice.

Each year, ten incoming first year undergraduate students are selected to participate in the Gannon Scholars Program. Scholars are expected to participate in the program for the duration of their four years of undergraduate study.

The Gannon Scholars Program was established in 1984 and is part of the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership. The Gannon Center, a University Center of Excellence at Loyola University Chicago, educates and fosters women leaders – students, faculty, and administrators – to contribute to a more just social order.
