The deKernion Fund
Dr. Jean deKernion '62, a Loyola biology undergraduate with a minor in chemistry and member of the Beggars fraternity, and his wife Mary established The deKernion Fund to provide scholarships and research funds to students in the life sciences. "The deKernion Fund has injected a huge boost into Loyola's already strong undergraduate research program in the life sciences. For the next three years, these funds are sufficient to support most any research student who otherwise has no support to be able to work on life science research without financial concerns," says Dr. Don Hauber, Chair and Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences.
The Dr. Walter Harris, Jr., Endowed Scholarship
The Dr. Walter Harris, Jr., Endowed Music Scholarship was established in 2018 by Dr. Henrietta Augustus Harris in honor of her husband, Dr. Walter Harris, Jr., retired distinguished Professor of Music and former Provost and Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Loyola University. The scholarship was created especially for talented minority students with financial need enrolled in Loyola's School of Music. As Dr. Henrietta Harris stated, "I want to honor Walter for his years of dedication to Loyola students. This scholarship will provide opportunities for students for years to come. We both feel he has had a stellar professorial and administrative career at Loyola." Walter truly enjoyed his years of service to Loyola University.
The Bienvenu Endowments
An anonymous donor who took evening classes for several years with the late Rev. Emmett M. Bienvenu, S.J., was so inspired by his teachings in ancient Greek poetry-- that they established several generous endowments as an expression of appreciation for the topic and a tribute to his memory. These endowments include a scholarship, research fund, professorship and university chair, all named for Fr. Bienvenu. The Bienvenu funds are used to support classical studies at Loyola. "Classical studies is a small but mighty program at Loyola and is an integral part of a Jesuit, liberal arts education," says Interim Provost Dr. Maria Calzada.
The Fitzwilliam Family Scholarship
The Fitzwilliam Family Scholarship is granted to students as an acknowledgement of the important role that intercollegiate sports play in the holistic development of Loyola students. The scholarship was created in recognition of Sean '00 and Kevin '03 Fitzwilliam both—Wolf Pack Athletics champions and sons of Michael '77 and Karen '71 Fitzwilliam—and the other Fitzwilliam family Loyola University graduates.
