​​Students conduct research projects under the guidance of faculty. ILO is working with our faculty and research support teams to increase visibility and support for these opportunities.

In fact, the Impact Learning Office offers a Student Development Award of up to $1,000 for students who are involved in research and would like to attend training in research skills or present their research at conferences.

The office sends out a call for applicants for this each semester.
