The Ignatian Hoya Biomedical Academic Scholarship awards $15,000 for one academic year to newly-admitted students who graduated from a Jesuit college/university and represent the Ignatian ideals in their personal accomplishments.
Jesuit Volunteer Corps Service Scholarship
Biomedical Graduate Education (BGE) is an education partner with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, which “engages passionate young people in vital service within poor communities, fostering the growth of leaders committed to faith in action”. Starting Fall 2020, individuals who have served for at least one year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps will receive a 20% tuition scholarship during each semester in which they are enrolled.
