Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
Similar to applying for a grant, students submit research proposals that are evaluated and ranked by faculty members. Awardees are then announced and receive a stipend and expenses to move forward with their project.
Applications are accepted in the fall and spring and some summers. To find out more about the program, see who is eligible and apply, visit UMD's UROP site.
