Application Opens! You may submit your application anytime before Jan 13, 2020 to be considered a first-round applicant. This means you'll get first pick of our available placements upon entering the second phase of our screening process.
Priority Deadline. Qualified applicants will be offered an interview with program staff after their applications are received. If you submit by this time, you'll get first pick of our placements. After this date, applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Second-Round Deadline. You may submit your application anytime between January 13 - March 2 to be considered a second-round applicant. We'll likely still have a handful of placements available, but our openings will start filling up as time goes on.
Applications accepted on a rolling basis after March 2 until all positions are filled. Sometimes we close the application process in April, other times it's open until July. Check back here frequently to make sure we're still accepting applications!
True to their mission to work for justice and act for peace, Loretto's unique spirit of openness and diversity cultivates both love of self and neighbor. This small yet fiery group of progressive Catholic women challenged me to step outside my comfort zone while simultaneously encouraging me to be true to myself. Never before have I been so challenged to love.

Review and update your resume with relevant academic, professional, and volunteer experiences. Email the recommendation forms to your THREE references (see form above) so you give them plenty of time to submit.
Submit your email in the form above to receive the full application packet. You'll probably want to take a few breaks while you work on the application, and our portal will allow you to save your work and return to it. So heat up the kettle for tea, grab yourself a snack, and turn up the music so it's a pleasant experience for you and not just one more assignment to complete.
We invite you to approach filling out our application as a discernment process in itself. We hope our prompts will help you think about what you want for yourself professionally and personally for the coming year. Clarifying your passions and goals before you begin interviews will invite ease and confidence throughout the process. Have fun with it--this is YOUR future we're talking about!
Make sure to check back in with your references to confirm they've completed the forms. They should not send the forms to you. They'll turn them in to our screening team directly. But please plan to keep tabs on whether or not they've been submitted so we receive them around the time of your other application materials.
Once you've submitted all application forms, keep an eye on your email. We'll reach out soon to discuss next steps. You can review our interview and placement matching process outlined in this document.
