Edward J. Loyas Scholarship
Deadline April 22nd


Applications are now available for the Edward J. Loyas Scholarship application. The deadline is April 22nd. You don’t have to be Polish in order to take advantage of this generous, annual scholarship.

To qualify for it you need to:
1.  Have a B (3.0 GPA) or better overall GPA
2.  Be an active Seton Hall Slavic Club member
3.  And you have to write an essay, “What does Polish culture mean to me?”

Here is the link to its application:

And before you write your essay for it, please watch one of our former Slavic Club President’s speech pertaining to her receiving this scholarship, and what it has meant to her and her own family.

It will give you an idea what to say in your own essay, which is a VERY important part of this application. AND PLEASE MAKE YOUR ESSAYS PERSONAL: How this scholarship would help you and your family financially and with your education.….

The Committee for this Scholarship (which I happened to be part of) takes these essays very seriously, so please write yours from your heart, with some personal info. And these essays should be well written.

Awards range between $500-$7,500. Applications can be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid.

Good luck and take advantage of this scholarship EACH academic year.

Thank you and with all the best,
Prof. Anna Kuchta
