Legacy and Heritage Scholarship Programs

Pass the Torch and Leave Your Legacy

At Loyola University New Orleans Online, we make it easy for our graduates to leave a legacy for others and for themselves. At no cost to you – an official alumnus – we will help you bestow a $1,000 scholarship through two scholarship programs:

  • The Legacy Scholarship – a $1,000 donation (in your name) to anyone you nominate who is accepted and enrolls into one of our online programs. You must be a graduate of an online program at Loyola University New Orleans to nominate someone for this scholarship.

  • The Heritage Scholarship – a $1,000 donation to yourself when you are accepted and enroll into one of our online programs. You must be a graduate any program (online or on-campus) of Loyola University New Orleans.
    Nominate yourself >>

The scholarship is applied to the first invoice for your first course in the program. There is no individual cap on the number of nominations, though there are only up to 50 total scholarships given out annually.
