Campus Partners

The Fellowship Office has several campus partners, as follows:

Diversity: The Financial Aid Office is the central information resource on scholarships for underrepresented students.  Students are strongly encouraged to view the information on the FAO website first, and to speak to a Financial Aid advisor.  Further, the FAO is partnered with the Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Office (SDMA) and the Fellowship Office, to provide further guidance.  Underrepresented students should contact SDMA for support services, including academic planning and mentorship.  Students should also refer to the Fellowship Office for information on certain upcoming scholarships, deadlines, and specific ways to put together a competitive application. 

The Study Abroad Office keeps several different lists of study abroad funding: scholarships provided by LUC, scholarships provided by external agencies, and diversity scholarships.  We encourage students to contact the Study Abroad office with questions.

The Fellowship Office works as actively as possible with SDMA to ensure that all of the student populations it serves are aware of the many different types of funding available to them.  Students served by SDMA are also encouraged to visit the website of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, to review the institution's diversity initiatives. 

LUROP administers all Loyola undergraduate research programs, which are designed to “enrich, enhance, diversify and individualize the learning experiences of our undergraduate students”. These experiences represent far more than a credential to add to resume, because they will help you to think more critically, to formulate new research ideas, and write in more informed ways when preparing proposals. LUROP is part of the Center for Experiential Learning.

The Fellowship Office is happy to assist graduate students (especially with regard to all Fulbright applications). However, graduate students should first seek information from Jessica Horowitz, Assistant Dean of the Graduate School, at the following contact information:

Dr. Jessica Horowitz, PhD

Graduate students who choose to apply for a major award, such as a Fulbright, NSF/GRFP or other awards, may be eligible to apply for a Research Incentive Award for Graduate Students, much like the FIG awards for which undergraduates may apply.

In September 2016 , the Fellowship Office was invited by the Office of Student Leadership Development to present at their annual seminar on Global Leadership, for the fourth year in a row.  Having been involved in a 2017-2018 year planning meeting with SLD, we plan to expand our partnership with SLD to include presentations on leadership awards.
