Greer Scholarship Network 

In the Student Academic Services unit, our purpose is promoting the lifelong success of Loyola students.  By providing opportunities for learning, growth, and reflection, we help students learn about themselves, and fundamentally evolve in the way they perceive, think and act in our global society – becoming driven toward action that leads to more just communities.

In partnership with the Greer Foundation, we approach the Greer Scholars with this mission and vision and have worked to ensure the success of the Greer Scholars from one academic year to the next. Greer Scholarships are awarded to incoming first-year students with interest in STEM-related academic programs. To this end, the Greer Scholars program is dedicated to the persistence of students of color in STEM academic programs here at Loyola University Chicago.

Our program features:

  • Greer Scholars Summer Retreat in August
