Loyola University Chicago


Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program • Center for Experiential Learning



Loyola offers 16 different funded fellowships, scholarships, or awards to undergrads that support students as they conduct a mentored research project.

Each fellowship is different. Some are for the summer and others are for the academic year, while still others are two-year fellowships. Some match students up with a mentor, while others require students to have a mentor on board when they apply. Some offer an award (often referred to as a "stipend") that is paid directly to the student, while others offer a scholarship award that is granted directly toward tuition. Each is based in a different department, office, school, or lab at the university.

There are some commonalities though. All projects must include a mentor. Most programs offer a stipend and a research budget. Most LUROP Fellows present at Loyola's spring research and engagement symposium. And except for the Ricci Scholarship Program, all LUROP Fellowships use the same online application portal, although you need to submit separate application material for each program.
