It is with regret we inform you that currently there is no opening in UROP in your chosen interest, and NO it will not help to change your interest area at this time. Currently all our seminars are full and still over capacity. We won't know more until after the first two weeks of school during which students modify their schedules. If a spot opens and we can find you a placement, you will be contacted via email.
For any first year student we are unable to find a spot in our program, we will contact you again for next year and try to give you priority for the program. In addition, we will put you on our email list so you can hear about any other opportunities that may be available to the UM student community at large.

How Work Study Students Participate in UROP:
UROP students will be employed by UROP and will receive an hourly wage of $8.50 for the hours worked on the research project. Only hours worked on the project may be submitted on timesheets for payment. Activities related to the research seminar (attendance at seminars, work on assignments, projects and individual meetings with Peer Advisors) may not be submitted on time sheets for payment!
Work Study participants will register for 1 academic credit of UC280.001. Students will register for this course after finding a research project and submitting the UROP Learning Agreement Contract. Credit is earned by attending a bi-weekly research seminar where a variety of research issues are explored, completing journal and reading assignments, having individual monthly meetings with their UROP Peer Advisor, and completing a term project. A detailed syllabus for this course with complete information about topics, assignments, etc. will be available on the UROP Peer Instructor’s CTools website after a student has been admitted and placed in a peer group.
