The Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) is the umbrella under which all funded undergraduate research programs offered at Loyola University Chicago are centralized. The goal of LUROP is to enrich, enhance, diversify, and individualize the learning experiences of undergraduate students. Undergraduate research opportunities are administered by their own center, department, or director, but they are centrally coordinated by the Center for Experiential Learning. Each program is unique, providing students from any school or department with the opportunity to conduct research in their area of interest. For more information, please visit the LUROP website.
The Fellowship Office assists Loyola undergraduates and recent alumni to apply for national and international fellowships and scholarships, which commonly provide funding for graduate school or study and research overseas. Get more information online.
Once you are a student at Loyola, you may qualify for scholarships offered by academic departments. These awards are typically offered to students beyond the freshman level, so after you are established in your major, you can begin to make inquiries with your academic department. The number and amount of awards vary by department, as do eligibility criteria. Contact your academic department for more information about scholarship options.
