March 21, 2014

Loyola University New Orleans announced it is now offering a new scholarship that allows alumni to bestow friends, peers and family members $1,000 toward an eligible online graduate program. The Loyola University New Orleans Online Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to 50 alumni-nominated candidates who apply, are accepted and enroll in the Summer 2014 term.

“Our alumni are an integral part of who we are as an institution,” says Mary Oriol, Dr.PH., R.N., interim director of Loyola’s School of Nursing. “Our students don’t just leave, never looking back. Part of Loyola University New Orleans' education experience and Jesuit mission includes developing our students to lead meaningful lives that have global impact. That mission includes sharing their knowledge and acting as mentors in their communities in addition to taking leadership in their professional roles. This scholarship is part of carrying that torch and becoming a beacon for others to follow.”
