Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

UROP facilitates undergraduate participation in faculty-mentored research projects on all U of M campuses. Students must apply to be a part of the program in order to get funding. The program is flexible, allowing research study in any academic area University-wide.

Participating in UROP gives you the chance to:

  • Explore and identify academic and career interests
  • Apply classroom learning to real-time research
  • Work closely with a U of M faculty mentor
  • Prepare for a career or graduate school

There are two application rounds, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. See UROP application deadlines.  UROP will no longer fund more than two awards for any student. If you have already received two UROP awards, you need to find an alternative way to do a research project (for example, registering for Directed Research credits).
