Undergraduate Fellowships

Loyola University Chicago offers several research fellowships for undergraduates through the Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) by the LUC Center for Experiential Learning. Students work with a faculty mentor to develop a research proposal and receive a stipend and funds for research supplies. Physics faculty have mentored numerous students that have been recipients of these fellowships.
