Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)
Supporting mentor-student undergraduate research experiences
UROP provides funding support for undergraduate students to work with a mentor on real-world problems to gain research and scholarly skills that can be applied to their college coursework and future careers.
In this program, students will acquire research skills (e.g., literature review, research methodology, data collection, and analysis), learn about ethics in research and writing, and improve their oral communication skills by presenting their research at either the annual IUPUI Student Research and Creative Activities Day in the spring semester (usually at the end of April) or the CRL Summer Poster Symposium (usually at the end of July).
UROP projects involve one student and one mentor. Projects should provide an opportunity to engage in a substantive research experience focused on a significant research problem. Projects from all disciplines are welcome, including science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); social sciences; arts and humanities; and social, environmental, and public policy.
