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. Find out more about the program and who is eligible.

Spring 2018 - October 9, 2017 at 11:59pm

Summer 2018 and Fall 2018 - February 26, 2018 at 11:59pm

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.
