Benedictine isn't the only place our students can get valuable research experience. There are several off-campus research opportunities available through other universities, national laboratories and corporations, both in the Chicago area and nationwide. Many of these include not only a stipend but a housing allowance. Recommendations from faculty have been helpful in allowing students to be awarded these competitive positions.

The list provided below is by no means comprehensive, but is a good starting point for students seeking research and internship positions at off-campus locations.
