The Loran Award is a scholarship given by the Loran Scholars Foundation which works to identify and support young people who have the integrity and courage to make difficult decisions, the perseverance to work towards long-term goals, the curiosity to better understand the world around them and the drive to make positive change in their communities. The Loran Award is not a reward for past achievements, but an investment in a young person’s potential future path of high impact.
