Student Grants are awarded in two terms, according to the following guidelines:

  • Summer term proposal timelines should span most of the award period (from the end of the spring term to the beginning of the fall term) and come to a distinct, if not final, conclusion by the end of the term.

  • Academic Year term proposal timelines should span most of the award period (from the beginning of the fall term to the end of the spring term) and come to a distinct, if not final, conclusion by the end of the term.

Continuing Projects

  • Students are allowed to submit proposals for continuing projects that extend beyond the grant term, but all proposals should come to a distinct, if not final, conclusion by the end of the term.    
  • Students submitting proposals for continuing projects spanning more than one grant term should clearly state end points in each proposal.
  • Applications with proposals for continuing projects are evaluated and awarded independently.

Additional Restrictions

  • Students may apply for more than one grant type and/or grant term, but can only accept one grant per term, which means consecutive funding is acceptable whereas concurrent funding is not allowed.
  • There is currently no limit on the total number of UROP Grants a student may receive as an undergraduate at CU Boulder.
  • Students may apply by submitting similar proposals for different grant terms but should ensure proposal timelines are appropriate for the term.
