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. To find out more about the program, see who is eligible and apply, visit:



UROP Deadlines

For spring semester UROPs, the deadline for applications is early in the fall semester.

For summer and fall UROPs, the deadline for applications is early in the spring semester. 

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. Faculty members have also shared Potential UROP Projects.
  • 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.
