Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) now recruiting projects for 2021-2022
Mentoring a student in the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program gives you an opportunity to shape the future of your field and make a lasting impact in the life of an undergraduate student.
UROP creates research partnerships between undergraduate students and U-M researchers or local community partners and organizations. Students engage in research and creative projects with research mentors representing all 19 colleges/schools/units at U-M.
UROP programming and resources focus on supporting and further developing the diverse skills and perspectives that our students bring to higher education and encourages them toward a life-long appreciation for discovery, building understanding across differences, and critically examining information in the world around them.
Researchers receive research support from undergraduate research assistants. UROP pays student wages for those who are eligible through the work-study program and provides academic credit options. Supplementary funding is available for out of pocket expenses incurred by sponsoring a UROP student(s).
Because of COVID-19 circumstances, mentors are encouraged to think of both virtual and in-person research tasks for students.
