The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides grants of up to $1,800 for undergraduate students either to carry out a project of the student's own design in close collaboration with a faculty sponsor or work with a faculty member on her/his scholarly or creative project.    
Thousands of students and faculty across the University have already discovered the benefits of these hands-on research opportunities in laboratories, studios, libraries, and field sites. Participating students have developed detailed knowledge of research methods while their faculty sponsors have gained the assistance of enthusiastic and capable students. 
To find out more about undergraduate research and the UROP program, visit http://ugresearch.umn.edu/opportunities/urop. Application materials for UROP are available on the web at http://ugresearch.umn.edu/urop/application-process.  The application deadline for spring 2017 projects is October 10, 2016.
UROP stipends are now paid as scholarships rather than as payroll. Please check with Financial Aid to determine if this will affect your aid package for the year.

If you have questions about UROP, please contact Wendy Nicholson-Kotas at 612-624-4368 or nicho421@umn.edu.
