Loyola University Maryland has received a $100,000 grant from the Hearst Foundations to create William Randolph Hearst Scholarships for minority students.
“Loyola is profoundly committed to maintaining and enhancing the diversity of our academic community, and to ensuring that a Loyola education remains accessible for talented students, regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola. “This grant from the Hearst Foundations will play an important part in our efforts to attain both of these goals.”
Founded in 1945 to further the philanthropic interests of famed publisher William Randolph Hearst, the Hearst Foundations provide resources for organizations and institutions in the fields of education, health, culture, and social service.
