Off-Campus Research
On-Campus Research
Most off-campus research opportunities occur during the summer and include room & board, travel to and from the research site, and a generous stipend (like a paycheck) for their work. The Office of Research & Creative Arts (ORCA) offers several on-campus research opportunities including the Independent Undergraduate Research Program and the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP).
Fellowships like Millennium and CGI U allow students to design their own projects, including on-campus initiatives. LMU's Centers and Institutes typically offer research opportunities, including research assistant positions, for both undergraduate and graduate students. Explore their webpages for more information.
