Other Project Funding Resources

For student, faculty, and staff interested in advancing projects there may be other more appropriate resources available to you. These may be grants, fellowships or scholarships.

Research initiatives should review opportunities available by LUROP and the Office of Research Services.

  • Community Action Scholarship (Community Relations) - Build collaborative relationships. Design your own project and earn $1,000 toward tuition. Students will implement this project in fall and/or spring of the year that the scholarship is received. 
  • The Rachel Carson Scholarship (IES) provides the opportunity for students to learn about nature by studying in nature through summer coursework at Loyola’s Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC).
  • The Institute of Environmental Sustainability Undergraduate Research Fellowship program is designed to bring innovative research opportunities to students at Loyola University Chicago. The focus of the program is for students to conduct interdisciplinary research on issues related to unsustainable natural resource uses in the greater Chicago land region.
  • The Institute of Environmental Sustainability LUREC Scholarship is offering multiple opportunities s for Environmental Science majors to take classes during Loyola's summer session at LUREC in May and August.
  • The Carbon Fellowship program (LUROP) offers a full two-year, interdisciplinary research opportunity for undergraduate students majoring in Biology, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Physics or Statistics.

You can find information about additional undergraduate research programs at Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP).

Another resource to look for hands-on learning opportunities is through Loyola University Chicago's Center for Experiential Learning (CEL). The CEL serves students, faculty, staff, and community partners as a resource for community-based experiential learning opportunities and partnerships.

Research Opportunity Fair is held each April by the Department of Biology.

The Mulcahy Scholars Program  (College of Arts and Sciences) was formed to facilitate close working relationships between Loyola students and faculty. Through the program, students work with faculty members on projects of scholarly significance that reflect the diversity of academic activity throughout the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).

Student groups should seek resources through SAGA or their affiliated academic unit.
