What is LUROP?

Housed in the Center for Experiential Learning, the Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) facilitates undergraduate research opportunities across the disciplines. There are currently 17 different LUROP fellowship programs offering undergraduates an opportunity to conduct research with a mentor. These fellowships also offer excellent opportunities for faculty members, graduate students, and community partners to mentor young researchers, which is at the heart of the undergraduate research experience. You can find a full list of LUROP fellowships here.

In addition to fellowship programs, LUROP supports undergraduate research at Loyola through seminars and workshops, guides and resources, summer programs, and our annual Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium.
