Scholarship opportunities for Latinx, first generation, or other underrepresented populations.
All first-year applicants are automatically considered for merit-based academic scholarships, ranging from $14,000 to $23,000 per year. These awards are renewable for four years or eight academic semesters at Loyola. Historically, admitted students who qualified for a merit scholarship received at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. There is no extra application for academic merit-based scholarships, but there is a separate application required for the Ignatian Scholarship, Social Justice Scholarship, and Ensemble Award within the student’s admissions portal. All students should apply for Financial Aid by submitting the FAFSA. This will allow you to be considered for Loyola grants as well as federal need-based aid. Loyola’s FAFSA Code is 002016.

Loyola New Orleans is fast-approaching its commitment to becoming a Hispanic-serving institution and was recently named #7 in the nation for Class/Race Interactions (Diversity) by the Princeton Review. We promote equity, access, and inclusion by sustaining a university-wide commitment to implement a multi-faceted, comprehensive diversity program. Our initiatives focus on four overarching strategies: + Dedicated to a high-quality, experiential, and values-based education. + Devoted to students’ discovery of their career and a life of service. + Infused by the cultures and traditions of New Orleans. + Rooted in the Jesuit and Catholic mission of the university.
