Undergraduate Researcher Award
The Outstanding Loyola Undergraduate Research Award has been established to honor Loyola undergraduates who conduct exceptional research, articulate their research to others, and enhance Loyola’s reputation as a quality research university by integrating research into their academic learning experience.
Each year at the Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium, LUROP will grant multiple awards, and recipients will each receive $500. The awards will be selected based upon three factors: 1) a letter of nomination from the student’s mentor, 2) a research statement from the student reflecting on their research experience, and 3) the student’s submission to the symposium, either a poster or an oral presentation.
- Any Loyola undergraduate who conducted research during the year since the previous symposium qualifies. A student does not need to be a LUROP Fellow to be considered.
- Undergraduate researchers who wish to be considered must have conducted work under a mentor or supervisor, who will submit the initial nomination.
- Mentor nominations for 2018–2019 are due Sunday, March 17th. (The 2019 nomination form will be available later this fall.)
- Nominated students will be notified, and must submit a research statement by Tuesday, April 5th.
- Finalists will be asked to submit either their research poster or the text and/or media components of their oral presentation for final consideration.
