Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

Similar to applying for a grant, students submit research proposals that are evaluated by three 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. The next application is due February 27, 2017. Find out more about the program and who is eligible.

2017-2018 Deadlines

Fall 2017 - February 27, 2017 at 11:59 pm

Summer 2017 - February 27, 2017 at 11:59 pm

Spring 2018 - October 2017 (specific date to be determined)

Due to the large volume of applications and processing requirements, UROP deadlines are strict. Late applications are not accepted.

Additional Resources for UROP Participants

  • Be sure to check in with your department as they have additional information that can help you get involved in a research project and check out the project database.
  • Final Report Information - This is a necessary step for all participants. If you have completed or are near completion of your project, check this out.

  • Additional Funding Request - To present the results of your research when other funds are exhausted. UROP students are encouraged to make use of other possible funding sources, no matter the amount, such as possible departmental or collegiate funds, and to have that funding secured when they make a request.
