Students who compete successfully for national academic awards typically have one or more summer research experiences. Many of these opportunities are sponsored by government agencies, universities and colleges, or non-profit organizations. Normally, these programs run for 8-11 weeks over the summer, provide a modest stipend, and may include subsidized housing.
Summer Opportunities at Loyola
Do Research with a Faculty Member
You can learn to make intellectual and creative contributions to science through undergraduate research. Loyola’s faculty support students’ academic and professional growth in class, in laboratory, and through research. Reach out to faculty in natural sciences and beyond to introduce yourself – and remember that health-related research happens across many disciplines, including psychology, sociology, and global studies.
Apply for the Hauber Summer Research Fellowship
The Hauber summer research student fellows work side-by-side with natural and applied sciences professors in their areas of interest. You will learn essential research skills, gain experience in academic presenting, and create your own poster presentation.
Apply for Kolvenbach Research Grant
The Kolvenbach research grant gives you an opportunity to work on your own or with a faculty member on a research project that benefits a Baltimore non-profit of your choice. You may engage in this research during the summer or academic year.
Center for Humanities Student Summer Fellowships
These fellowships support student work on scholarly or creative projects in the humanities for ten consecutive weeks during the summer under the direction of a full-time Loyola faculty member. Students receive stipends of $4,000 each and are eligible for campus housing, if they wish; faculty mentors receive stipends of $1,000. The Center hopes to award at least four of these fellowships each year.
See the Center for Humanities Student Programs page for more information on other summer opportunities, including stipends for internships and summer study programs.
