STEAM Scholars

The STEAM Scholars is an enrichment program designed to enhance the curriculum of Loyola students interested in applying knowledge and realizing those ideas in a tangible way. Created in 2022, the STEAM Scholars program prepares students to attend the finest universities by endowing them with the ability to think critically and creatively. The program is focused on having students apply knowledge from the classroom to solve problems. Worthy of its Jesuit ideals, the program calls students to maximize their talents in a caring, respectful way to serve others, and consider the impact they will have on the earth and the future.
