Loyola University Chicago

Diversity and Inclusion at Loyola

Scholarships

A variety of scholarships are available to Loyola students. Please note that underrepresented students can, and are strongly encouraged, to apply for virtually any award we list.  Below you will find links to awards specifically designated for diverse students.  Nevertheless most scholarship and fellowship agencies are actively looking for as diverse an applicant pool as possible.  Both the Financial Aid Office and the Fellowship Office are happy to work with you. Also, see the article Diversity and the Scholarship Process by Loyola Fellowship Coordinator Lisa Knepshield.
