Who is Dr. Erica Ward?
Dr. Erica Ward is our Academic Director. We believe that she embodies the values we are seeking in our scholarship applicants: she is passionate, dedicated, hard-working, and driven to make the world a better place. Dr. Ward consistently strives to find ways that Loop Abroad can support projects in need and help its students and alumni have fulfilling academic opportunities. We have decided to name this scholarship after her in order to honor her continued commitment to her values and purpose. (PS - She isn't dead. Please don't write your application essay or personal statement about honoring her legacy - she is very much alive and still working here, and if you are a finalist for the scholarship, she will read your essay.)
