Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

We also encourage undergraduate students to apply for the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). This program, sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research, supports research projects dedicated to fulfilling the U of M’s commitment to research and expanding the store of human knowledge and expression. Students who successfully apply will receive a $1400 stipend to support their research and will also have an opportunity to present their research at various university symposia.  

Students who earn a UROP will be mentored by one of nearly 3000 diverse faculty members and will meet other students who share a passion for discovery about the human condition. The UROP will help you delve deeply into a personal topic of interest and importance under the direct supervision of a faculty member in the department. 

If you are interested in pursuing a program with UROP, please consult our undergraduate advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Office or visit the Office of Undergraduate Research for more information.
