Students may apply the federal and state (non-workstudy) aid they receive at Loyola towards their SIT program costs. To learn about how the aid will apply, contact Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information due to the varying SIT program costs.
Generous need-based scholarships ranging from $500 to $7,000 are available. A list of types of scholarships and the application process can be accessed here. Most fall SIT scholarship deadlines are in early May. For spring, they are in early November, and for summer they are in early April.
