The Student Summer Research Grant subsidizes a student’s scholarly research, writing, and/or artistic production that gives expression to the Roman Catholic intellectual tradition or its artistic heritage in the academic discipline of the student’s choosing. A Faculty mentor, selected by the student, supervises the research and assists completion of the scholarly project.
The summer research grant includes a stipend for the student and the faculty mentor. Any undergraduate student currently enrolled at Loyola who is a member of the Class of 2014, 2015, or 2016 is eligible to apply for the award.
The application consists of four component parts:
- a cover page that provides basic information about the applicant and the project;
- a typed research proposal of 750-1,000 words that details the nature of the study, its purpose, and its relation to the Roman Catholic intellectual or artistic heritage;
- a bibliography of pertinent works or resources studied and those to be examined in scholarly research for the project; and
- a letter of endorsement not to exceed 500 words in length from the faculty mentor for the research project that addresses the project’s merit, the competence of the student to conduct the project, and the project’s relation to the Roman Catholic intellectual tradition or its artistic heritage.
For 2013, the Student Summer Research Grant comes with a stipend of $4000 for the student and an additional $1000 for the professor who guides the research.
Six copies of the application materials must be submitted to Susan Szczybor in the department of theology by noon on Friday, April 12, 2013. For more information, contact Dr. Trent Pomplun at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Gerard Athaide at email@example.com.
