(Student applications are OPEN for Spring 2021 semester projects)
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides current University of Minnesota undergraduates $1,500 scholarships so that they can partner with a faculty member on research, which enables undergrads to explore academic and career interests, apply classroom learning to real-time research, and prepares them for a career or graduate school while working closely with a U of M faculty member. The application process is a two-step one. The student application deadline occurs first; once that has closed, faculty mentors will have a week to enter their recommendations. Due to security restrictions, mentors will not be able to access the site until the student portal has closed.
