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 (October through April) or the summer (June through July).

In this program students will acquire research skills (literature review, research methodology, data collection and analysis), learn about ethics in research and scientific writing, and improve their oral communication skills by presenting their research at either the annual IUPUI Student Research and Creative Activities Day in April or the CRL Student Summer Poster Symposium in July.

Students receive a $1,000 (academic year) or $3,200 (summer) research scholarship. The mentors will receive $500 for research supplies or equipment.  

  • Summer Applications – Opens February 1st and closes March 30th
  • Academic Year Application – Opens August 1st and closes September 17th
