Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

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 your application is successful, you will receive a stipend to support your research and you will have the opportunity to present your research at various university symposia.

Students who earn a UROP will be mentored by one of nearly 3,000 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. The 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 are interested in pursuing a program with UROP, please consult our Director of Undergraduate Studies, Tom Reynolds, or visit the Office of Undergraduate Research for more information.
