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 Oct - Apr) or 40 h per week (summer Jun - Jul), which includes participation in professional development sessions as determined by program director.
