The School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) at Loyola has created a scholarship program dedicated to One Million Degrees (OMD) scholars, including alumni of the OMD program. SCPS is Loyola’s school devoted to adult learners. Courses are tailored to working adults and are offered in eight-week accelerated sessions. Format options include online, evening, and Saturday options.

One Million Degrees empowers low-income, highly motivated community college students to succeed in school, in work, and in life. Their mission ties in with Loyola’s holistic approach in determining the value of your endeavor. Students' degree completion experience is thoughtfully designed around three pillars: leadership, career success, and meaningful life.


We are committed to the success of our students – and this partnership has created an exciting scholarship opportunity for the scholars and alumni of One Million Degrees.

Scholars and Alumni can apply to five (5) scholarships – each $5,000, available every academic year for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at Loyola.
