David Salvaterra, PhD Award 

The David Salvaterra, PhD Award was established with the primary intention of providing financial assistance to history or education students enrolled at Loras College, enabling them to continue their educational journey while honoring Dr. Salvaterra’s legacy. This award supports exceptional students, of at least Junior standing, who embody academic excellence and dedication to their chosen fields of study. This financial support serves to alleviate some of the educational expenses faced by the recipient, enabling them to focus more intently on their studies and personal growth.

By honoring those who demonstrate remarkable dedication and achievement in the fields of history and education, this award embodies the values of Loras College and the impact Dr. Salvaterra had on his students, colleagues, and friends during his time at Loras.

Gifts of all sizes make an immediate impact and ensure current and future Duhawks continue to receive a top-tier Catholic education.
