Loretta M. Schmidt Scholarship

The School of Continuing and Professional studies (SCPS) is the beneficiary of a generous endowment from Loretta Margaret Schmidt, sister of Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, BVM, originally intended for students of Mundelein College, which is now part of SCPS. Mundelein College was founded by the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVMs), in response to a call by Cardinal George Mundelein for a Catholic women’s college in Chicago. Today, the legacy and records of Mundelein College are preserved by the Women and Leadership Archives
