Discover UROP

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) creates research partnerships between undergraduate students and University of Michigan researchers.  All schools and colleges are active participants in UROP, which provides a wealth of interesting research topics for program participants.  UROP started with 14 student/faculty partnerships in 1988, and has expanded to include more than 1300 students and 800 faculty researchers.
