Monroe Library Student Research Competition

By Loyola University on Thu, 03/02/2023 - 13:30

Have you been working on a research project that uses the library's wide array of resources in interesting or novel ways?

The Monroe Library Student Research Competition recognizes and rewards students who make exemplary use of the collections, resources, and services of the J. Edgar & Louise S. Monroe Library throughout the research process in order to produce an academic or creative work. You can view information about past winners. The committee is especially eager to receive submissions representing the range of Loyola's academic programs and their approaches to research. Creative or innovative work in any format or discipline is eligible.


  • $200 for a freshman/sophomore research project
  • $200 for a junior/senior research project
  • $200 for a senior capstone/thesis project
  • $200 for a graduate student research project


To be eligible to win, individual or team applicants must:

  • Have completed their research project for a credit course at Loyola during the past calendar year (spring, summer, or fall semester). Research projects include, but are not limited to, papers. Creative or innovative works in any format or discipline are encouraged.
  • Agree to contribute to publicity related to the award.

Collaborative projects are encouraged. If a team project applies, all team members must contribute toward the application. If a team project wins, the award will be split equally among members.
