Nicolle Leon-Araujo started this petition to LUC FYRE Students

FYRE is an great research program that was offered at Loyola University Chicago for first-year students. After the research takes place, each student would have received a stipend for their participation. Sadly, the program was canceled due to COVID-19 and will not be postponed. There were many obstacles students had to overcome and obstacles that are now surfacing due to the cancellation of this program. 

Firstly, prior to participating in the summer research program it is required that one must take part in a semester long course: UNIV 102. This course is set at a specific time for each student and takes up a credit hour. Because of the scheduling of this course, many students were either not able to take other courses from having to revolve their schedule around their UNIV class.

Secondly, the participants in this program are not able to partake in any other programs during while FYRE takes place, including internships, research, and working. This took a toll on many, not being able to be a part of other opportunities. 

Lastly, because the research program is canceled, students are being financially impacted. Many participants were relying on the stipend to pay for tuition and other expenses. Now students are not able to receive the stipend and also have to pay for the UNIV course. 

Sign this petition for LUC FYRE (2020) students to receive the $1000 stipend for the program and/or a refund for the UNIV course.
