CSW Scholarship

2015-2016 Scholarship

 

The Loyola Marymount University Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) will sponsor scholarships this year to support students who actively contribute to the experience and expression of female life on campus.  This “contribution” is open to interpretation and could include leadership, service, or setting a specific example of empowerment, no matter how small. 

Each CSW scholarship awards $1,000 to the recipient.  Applications should be made in the spring term by continuing students who will receive their award for the following academic year.  This scholarship is open to women and men, undergraduates and graduate students, as well as full-time or part-time students.  The award will be deposited into the student’s LMU account in the following academic year.  

To apply, students must fill out an application, submit a resume, and write a one-page typed essay (approximately 500 words) describing how the applicant intends to contribute to the status of women on campus.  The selection committee will weigh most heavily the thoughtfulness of the essay. We also require ONE faculty reference letter.  The application, resume, and essay should be submitted together to CSW@lmu.edu. The letter of recommendation should be emailed separately to CSW@lmu.edu by the recommender. All application materials must be received by March 13, 2015 in order to be considered.
