Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)

IUPUI students typically identify a mentor and work with their mentor to write a proposal for a substantive research project to be completed during the academic year (fall and spring semester) or the summer (8-9 weeks).

Students receive a $1,000 (academic year) or $3,200 (summer) research stipend. The mentors will receive $500 for research supplies or equipment. Half of the student stipend is disbursed mid-project, and the remainder upon successful completion of the project and submission of all research products. Students are expected to work at least 25 h per month (academic year) or 40 h per week (summer), which includes participation in professional development sessions as determined by program director.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Undergraduate student
  • Enrolled full-time at IUPUI
  • Pursuing their first undergraduate degree at IUPUI
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.8 or higher

Preference will be given to students who have not received any CRL stipend in the past.
