Program Description:

Paris 2017 StudentsJack and Sarah LaNasa Scholarship
for Loyola University Summer Study Abroad Programs

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. 

Applications are currently being accepted for the Jack and Sarah LaNasa Memorial Scholarships for Loyola’s summer study abroad programs.  The recipients must:

  1. be an undergraduate student pursuing a degree offered by the College of Arts and Sciences;
  2. have a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average;
  3. show sufficient financial need that they would not be able to participate in a study abroad program without such a scholarship. 
  4. have applied to one of the Loyola summer programs listed below.  Please note, that you cannot be considered for a scholarship if you have not applied to a program.
