The Loyola High School Alumni Association has established a “Post-Secondary Award” of up to $2,000 to be presented each year to a graduate(s) of the school who is involved in a program that exemplifies Loyola’s "Men-for-Others" philosophy – in other words, in a program that requires a “dedicated commitment” in the service of others. This could be as a participant in an international development or missionary project in a third world country, or a position with an NGO (non governmental organization) and so on. Basically, one should be involved in a program designed to help the needy and could be as simple as helping out with projects that are in a local neighborhood. The applicant will be required to fill out an application form. Upon completion of the program, the applicant will be asked to write a synopsis of his experience (this would probably be published in Loyola Today).
