Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program

The University of Minnesota's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) offers financial awards twice yearly to full time undergraduates for research, scholarly, or creative projects undertaken in partnership with a faculty member. It encourages students to conduct research and pursue academic interests outside of their regular courses by employing them to work on special research projects. CEHSP students are eligible and encouraged to apply.  Additional webpages with UROP information can be found in the menu on this page.

Awards include up to $1500 in a scholarship award for hours worked and up to $300 for project-related expenses.

The next expected UROP Application/Proposal deadline date is Monday, February 21, 2022 at 11:59 PM for Summer/Fall 2022 semester projects.
