Events and deadlines
FIGs -- Fellowship Incentive Grants -- are back in season!
Are you thinking of applying for a major award, like a Fulbright grant, a Gilman Scholarship, or a Goldwater award? You may be eligible to apply for a FIG, a grant of up to $1000 for Loyola undergraduate students who plan to apply for a major fellowship or scholarship. Click on the FIG announcement in our News section above, or in our Current Award Competitions section to left, for complete details.
Deadlines for most awards for the summer 2014 and 2014-2015 year have passed. There are still a few competitions open – please refer to our list of Current Award Competitions on the left, and note their deadlines on our calendar on the right.
Now is the time to start planning for application deadlines in the fall 2014, for awards starting in 2015. For an idea of what awards are available, their purposes and deadlines, check out the following PowerPoint presentations from our information sessions:
For international fellowships such a the Gilman Scholarship, Boren Scholarship, and the Fulbright Program;
For STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) awards, including the Goldwater Scholarship and the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program
Both presentations feature clickable links to each award's website and our contact information.
You should also review the lists of Awards by Year or Major, which includes scholarships by interest such as study abroad, social justice, and the environment.
As award competitions open in the fall, we will update our Current Award Competitions section. There will also be campus visits and information sessions for specific awards including the Gilman Scholarships, Goldwater Scholarships, Udall Scholarships, Boren awards, and NIH awards, so keep checking our site as those are scheduled.
