About

Get Funding To Do Research! 

Each year UROP funds hundreds of students who produce new knowledge and creative work in partnership with CU's world-class faculty. We serve students and faculty whose learning and teaching goals include outside-the-classroom enrichment. 

Why do research?  In a UROP project you:

  • Explore academic interests beyond the classroom
  • Get hands-on experience with research or creative production
  • Develop student-faculty relationships for professional references
  • Acquire academic and professional skills and credentials
  • Demonstrate successful grant-writing skills
  • Refine your academic and career goals

UROP provides consultation services, informational workshops and grants to promote undergraduate research as a high-impact learning practice for student success.
