The Pre-Health Award

Loyola University Chicago will grant up to five awards for the 2016-2017 academic year in the amount of $2,500 each to currently enrolled, full-time Loyola University students who plan to seek admission to health professional school. The Pre-Health Awards (PHA) are distributed in two equal installments over the course of the academic year: upon successful completion of each fall and spring semester provided continued eligibility requirements are met.

The awards reduce one's financial burden and by doing so offer promising pre-health professional students greater opportunity to further cultivate their candidacies for health professional school. Such financial assistance may allow the selected students more freedom to engage in volunteer patient care experiences within their field of interest, defray the cost of applying and traveling to health professional schools, and assist with other activities that entail financial demands.

Eligible students must have completed at least 60 credit hours by the end of the summer 2016 term.  For more eligibility requirements and details, click here

Registration for the Pre-Health Award is now closed.  Please note that all letters of recommendation are due by 12 PM (noon) Friday, December 9, 2016.  Further information and instruction will be communicated to applicants in early December.
