Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

The U of M's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides a stipend to undergraduates for special research, scholarly, or creative projects done with a faculty member. You must apply and be accepted into the UROP program. To apply, you'll develop your own research proposal, usually in partnership or with the permission of a faculty member. Applications are accepted twice a year and are judged on the quality of the proposed project, and on the educational benefit to the student.

Application materials, deadlines, and additional information about undergraduate research may be found at the Everything UROP page. Explore the links below:

CFANS students who have questions or need guidance with the UROP program can contact Bill Ganzlin (CFANS Student Services) at bganzlin@umn.edu or 612-624-3047.
