Honors students are strongly encouraged to study abroad. Most students spend a semester studying in a foreign country during their Junior year, although it is not unusual to study abroad during Sophomore or Senior year. It is not uncommon for some of our students to spend a full academic year abroad.
Specific opportunities for honors students include:
- The Honors Program offers honors courses at Loyola’s campuses in Rome and Vietnam.
For more information on Loyola University Chicago’s opportunities for studying abroad, please contact the Office for International Programs (http://www.luc.edu/oip/).
Loyola University Chicago’s Fellowship Office is a good resource for information and application support related to study abroad scholarships such as awards to Germany from the DAAD, the Organization of American States Boren (https://www.borenawards.org/) or Gilman scholarship (http://www.iie.org/programs/gilman-scholarship-program). Please contact Lisa Knepshield, Fellowship Coordinator, to discuss these awards, some of which have a campus review or selection process.
