"Research outside Benedictine was time consuming but very rewarding. At Loyola I was exposed to different techniques, all at the graduate level."

—Daniela Janevska

Summer Research Opportunities Outside Benedictine

Benedictine isn't the only place our students can get valuable summer research experience.  Below please find a list of websites describing summer research opportunities both in the Chicago area and nationwide.  Many of these include not only a stipend but a housing allowance and can help student's broaden their academic experiences in unique and exciting ways.  Recommendations from faculty have been helpful in allowing students to be awarded these competitive positions.
