The Holsten Scholars Program is a unique, hands-on program which encourages students to experience an interdisciplinary
approach to learning while creating successful communities. It enables students to develop and hone their professional skills within the areas of law, social work, management, and health related fields, as they learn how each field relates to the social well-being of residents.
"The Loyola community provides the perfect opportunity for a Holsten Scholar to take advantage of experiential learning in the areas of law, social work, management and medical related fields. Being a Holsten Scholar will not only let you see the connections, it will let you become one.”
