Scholarships

A scholarship is a form of gift assistance that does not need to be repaid. Loyola awards need-based and merit scholarships on a competitive basis. The following academic scholarship opportunities are available through the School of Environmental Sustainability:

Rachel Carson Scholarship

The Rachel Carson Scholarship provides the opportunity for students to study nature through summer coursework at Loyola’s Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC). LUREC is Loyola’s ecological campus located 50 miles NE of Chicago, on almost 100 acres of wetland, forest, prairies, and ponds, including a 3-acre organic student farm. Courses offered at LUREC include Field Ornithology, Principles of Ecology, Wetland Ecology, Restoration Ecology, Conservation Biology, and Sustainable Agriculture.  

Awardees must take one 3-week course during the early summer session, in each of two years while at Loyola.  One J-term class at LUREC may substitute for a summer course. Recipients are also required to serve as ambassadors for LUREC with their peers. Four $2,500 per year scholarships are awarded for up to four years, each to qualified new freshman or transfer students who have been admitted into the School of Environmental Sustainability. Tuition and fees for LUREC classes must be paid from these funds, which are added to the student’s account at the beginning of each of their eight regular semesters. Prospective candidates must be admitted to Loyola prior to February 1st. The Rachel Carson Scholarship application is due March 1st. If you have questions about this award please contact the Undergraduate Admission Office at 800-262-2373 or admission@luc.edu.
