For new and continuing PhD students, Loyola University Chicago participates in the Diversifying Higher Education Faculty in Illinois (DFI) fellowship program. The goal of the DFI program is to support graduate work of under-represented minorities who are residents of Illinois in order to increase the number of minority full-time tenure track faculty and staff at Illinois’ two-year and four-year, public and private colleges and universities.   

Completed applications for the 2022-2023 academic years are due to The Graduate School no later than midnight February 11, 2022.
