Student Research and Funding Opportunities

Undergraduate Students

The Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) offers fellowships for mentored research, guides to external research opportunities, travel grants for conference presentations, workshops on research and presentation skills, a spring symposium and more. Important Dates are posted on the LUROP website. See LUROP for types of research support and application guidelines.

Undergraduate students can also get involved with research through the Undergraduate Nursing Research Scholar Program (UNRSP). This program offers students an opportunity to get involved in research under mentorship of a faculty member. 

Graduate Students

The Research Incentive Award for Graduate Students (RIAGS) program, administered by the Office of Research Services and the Graduate School, consists of an award of $200 for any Loyola graduate student submitting a proposal for external funding to a Federal or private agency, as well as a bonus award of $1000 for any approved proposal.

Research Funding Requests

Students who are approved in advance for a Research Funding Request may receive reimbursement of up to $400 for expenses related to the research and preparation of a dissertation, thesis, or major research paper in programs that do not already include a thesis.

Research Mentoring Program

The Research Mentoring Program (RMP) is designed to partner graduate students who are working on their dissertation research with undergraduates who are interested in participating in research.
