Loyola Marymount University offers a wide range of academic scholarships to recognize and reward the academic accomplishments of our most distinguished entering freshmen. No special application is required for these scholarships.
Named for Fr. Pedro Arrupe, the long-time Superior General of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) whose vision of Educating Men and Women for Others has become the hallmark of Jesuit education. Arrupe Scholarships are highly competitive and selective, range in value from $12,500 annually to full tuition, and are renewable for four years.
Also, international students who are considered for the Arrupe award compete with other students educated outside the USA in order to account for the variance in educational systems around the world. Furthermore, scholarship award amounts may vary from the award amounts for domestic students and there is not a specific minimum award value.
