LaNasa Scholarship for Loyola Summer Study Abroad
Jack and Sarah LaNasa Scholarship
Study abroad is an extremely valuable enhancement of a liberal arts education. It broadens a student’s perspective and introduces the student to new cultures which give her/him a greater understanding of differences and similarities within the world community. Study abroad is a transforming experience. Former President Barack Obama proclaimed,
“Simple exchanges can break down walls between us, for when people come together and speak to one another and share a common experience, then their common humanity is revealed. We are reminded that we're joined together by our pursuit of a life that's productive and purposeful, and when that happens mistrust begins to fade and our smaller differences no longer overshadow the things that we share. And that's where progress begins."
For too many students, access to study abroad is limited by their ability to afford it. To make study abroad accessible to more students, the LaNasa-Greco Foundation has provided an endowment for scholarships, a portion of which can be used for study abroad. The scholarships were created to promote excellence in the fields of the Arts and Sciences by offering incentives to talented students.
