Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

West Quad Annex, L110
  • The UROP program enables students to work outside the classroom with a small group of students and a faculty member of their choosing. These groups become research teams that work together for about 10 hours per week during the course of the academic year. Each group investigates a topic that is of interest to the group, and meets with other students in the program for educational and social programs.

  • All first- and second-year undergraduates within the University of Michigan are eligible to apply to UROP. Selections are made on a rolling basis and are determined by the students' level of interest in doing research, commitment to a project, evidence of academic preparedness, and by the availability of positions.
