Student Success: Loyola's commitment to cura personalis

Every student at Loyola deserves a chance to succeed and graduate. To make that possible, Loyola funds a grant program—supported by generous donations grants—that ensures that any student facing unexpected expenses has the support they need to succeed and graduate from Loyola. 

Student Success Fund

In recent years, Loyola has recognized the urgent need to grow a fund that supplies grants directly to students so they can continue at Loyola and graduate. Students have shared various financial and material needs with faculty, staff, and administrators. These needs vary from clothing items, food insecurity, money for laundry, printing to support academic work, money for transportation, money for diagnostic services (particularly around learning disabilities), educational supplies, and textbooks.

The Student Success Fund provides financial support to qualified undergraduate and graduate students pursuant to the University’s student retention and graduation efforts. Loyola’s dean of students administers the Fund, and awards are made to qualified, self-identified students by a committee of Loyola faculty and administrators that the dean of students oversees.

By supporting the Student Success Fund, you can ensure that every deserving Loyola student—no matter their circumstance—will have the opportunity to complete a world-class Jesuit education at Loyola.
