Loyola University Chicago

School of Social Work


Doctoral students are eligible to receive tuition waivers to cover their first two years of required course work.  Health insurance is included.  The School of Social Work may also match the tuition waiver with a $18,000 stipend per year. The stipend requires the doctoral student to work 20 hours per week with a faculty member who shares similar research interests. 

Financial assistance may be available through grants depending on availability and needs of the principal investigator.


There are a number of opportunities for students to apply for and receive financial assistance and scholarships

Individual research fellowships and scholarships within the School of Social Work are awarded on a merit basis and must be applied for via the director of the doctoral program.
