Social Justice Scholars Application

We invite you to apply to the Loyola Social Justice Scholars Program

Social Justice Scholars Program 
The Social Justice Scholars program provides a way for Loyola New Orleans students to live out the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence and the pursuit of social justice. The program is administered by the Department of Sociology, which has a strong commitment to the integration of academic learning and social action. For this reason, Social Justice Scholarship recipients are required to either minor or major in sociology. This intellectual foundation helps scholars to learn to critically analyze social problems and solutions. As part of their commitment to the program, scholars engage in 45 hours of service in the community and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75. New Social Justice Scholars enter into a community where they will meet others who share their commitments. Each month scholars meet together, share a meal, discuss their service work, and share their responses to a common reading that addresses issues of inequality and justice.
