Summer Opportunities

LUROP, Loyola's center for experiential learning, is a great resource for Loyola students that can help you find a research program that is right for you. 

RamblerLink also lists math and stats jobs and internship summer opportunities. Try using different keywords in your search such as: math, data, programming, statistics, etc.

You can also check out our Scholarships & Opportunities page for some other options.

The US National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a number of programs offering research experiences for undergraduates (REUs) in the Mathematical Sciences. These programs introduce students entering their junior or senior year to research topics in Mathematics; they last anywhere between four and eight weeks during the summer.

You can apply for financial assistance to partcipate in these programs. Typically this will include travel and local expenses, as well as a stipend. The selection process is highly competitive. In addition to an application form, you will most likely need two or three letters of recommendation from faculty who are familiar with your abilities.

If you have taken or are currently taking any advanced 300 level Mathematics/Statistics classes or if you are seriously considering pursuing graduate studies, browse through lists of current REUs maintained by the NSF and AMS.

Note that there will be a lot of intersection among the three lists. If you decide to apply, please don't hesitate to contact any of your professors in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics with any questions that you might have. We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

For your convenience, below we give a selection from the ever-changing lists above (updated January 23rd, 2017), funded by NSF or other agencies/institutions:
