Loyola University Chicago Foundation for Education


Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

During a recent volunteer activity, Loyola University Chicago Golden Key members read over grant submissions and helped determine which Chicago area teachers will receive $500 grants. The grants are awarded each year by the Chicago Foundation for Education. Recipients include Chicago Public School teachers in need of funding to implement programs in the classroom. More than 385 of these grants have been awarded the last two years.
