Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program

The IES 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 encourages research projects to combine elements of ecosystem structure and function, impacts on human health, public policy, behaviors, and other environmental factors. 

In addition, one fellowship specifically focusing on a biodiversity project researched out at Loyola’s Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC) will be considered. Application deadline is March 1.
