The Loyola Marymount University Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) will sponsor a scholarship 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 female empowerment, no matter how great or small.
The CSW scholarship awards $1,500 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 undergraduate and graduate students, as well as full-time or part-time students. The award can be used for school-related expenses or professional development. The deadline for the 2018 scholarship is March 15, 2018.
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.
