Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

We encourage you 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. If you successfully apply, you will receive a stipend to support your research and you will also have the opportunity to present your research at various university symposia.

If you earn a UROP, you will be mentored by one of nearly 3,000 diverse faculty members and meet other students who share a passion for discovery about the human condition. UROP can be used to help you achieve practical goals like your senior capstone project or put you on a path to a career. If you desire to pursue a program with UROP,  consult our undergraduate advisor, Natan Paradise, or visit the Office of Undergraduate Research for more information.
