What is UROP?

The University of Minnesota's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides funding to U of MN undergraduates who work on a research project with a faculty mentor. UROP provides a stipend (up to $1400 for approximately 120 hours of research) and expense money (up to $300 for project related expenses) to students. UROP is open to freshmen through seniors who are in an undergraduate degree program in good academic standing.  Learn more about how you can get involved!
