Student Research

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a funding opportunity intended to support undergraduate research by supplying modest financial backing to subsidize research time and expenses. UROPs are funded twice yearly by UM central administration. Visit the UROP site for more information and deadlines. CLA students should direct all questions to Dr. Jason Ford, Associate Dean, College of Liberal Arts.

Students are welcome to contact a UROP coordinator in their collegiate unit.
