Information for Schools
We are deeply grateful for the annual participation of teachers, counsellors and school administrators who help us discover students who show tremendous promise of character, service and leadership.
There is no limit to the number of applicants from a single school. We encourage you to help identify and support students who have demonstrated integrity, courage, grit, personal autonomy, a commitment to serving others and overall leadership potential. Students must meet our eligibility criteria in order to apply.
To learn more about the Loran Award and the application process, we encourage you to attend one of our informational webinars.

How many students may apply from my school?
There is no limit to the number of applicants from a single school.
Do I need to sponsor a student's application?
No. We now have a single application process, as opposed to our former dual system of school sponsorship and the direct pool. All eligible students are welcome to apply by filling out the application, uploading a transcript, and naming a reference. School sponsorship is no longer required.
Can I write the reference letter?
The student is welcome to choose whomever they want to write the reference, as long as it’s not a family member or a friend.
We missed the deadline for the application. Do you consider late applications?
We do not accept any late applications. Please note our deadline to apply for the 2022 Loran Award is October 13, 2021, before 8:00PM (Eastern Time).
Will I be notified about the status of a student's application?
Only applicants selected as semi-finalists are notified. If your student is selected as a semi-finalist, the school contact will be cc’d on the email notification.
