Research Scholars Program

The UROP Research Scholars Program is designed for students who want to participate in UROP for a second year. Scholars are expected to utilize the skills and experiences from their first year and expand their contribution to their research project and seminars.

The 2014-2015 Research Scholars program is available only to students participating in UROP for the first time during the 2013-2014 academic year. In addition, eligible students:

  • Will be an undergraduate at the  UM-Ann Arbor Campus during the 2014-2015 academic year,
  • Have talked with their UROP sponsor about how the student will contribute to the project at a more advanced level, and
