Inspired by an October 2000 address by Rev. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., Loyola University Maryland offers the Kolvenbach Research Grant Program to foster and encourage socially engaged research. The program seeks to honor Loyola's research strengths and galvanize the institution's commitment to faith and justice work that serves the needs of the underserved in the Baltimore community and beyond. Work may be conducted during the academic year or summer.

Applications are reviewed by the Engaged Scholarship Committee. The committee encourages all applicants to carefully review the Kolvenbach Grant Guidelines before submitting an application. Please see Kolvenbach Research Grant Recipients for more information on projects the committee funds.

This program invites proposals from Loyola faculty, students, staff, and administrators to conduct research projects that address the needs of a the larger community alongside a community partner. Please check out our presentation from our most recent Kolvenbach Information Session (pdf).
