Undergraduate Research Opportunities 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. At the same time, faculty have the opportunity to work closely with students and receive valuable assistance with their own research or professional activity. UROP adds a new dimension to the undergraduate experience. It also encourages students to conduct research and pursue academic interests outside of their regular courses by employing them to work on special projects. Projects are expected to contribute to the student's academic development.

UMD Colleges represented: College of Education and Human Service Professions, College of Liberal Arts, Labovitz School of Business and Economics, School of Fine Arts, and Swenson College of Science and Engineering
