About Us

The University of Colorado Boulder has an expansive history of undergraduate research with significant efforts dating to 1986 with the creation of UROP, which offers flexible funding options for undergraduates and faculty to form partnerships for projects in all majors.

Social Justice

UROP is dedicated to providing equitable access to the university's research and creative resources with inclusive outreach aligned with the diversity of student experiences.  Check out our Commitment to Social Justice and Equity for details.

Conference Funding

UROP's partner program the Professional and Academic Conference Endowment (PACE) provides funding to undergraduates sharing their work at conferences and exhibitions. We encourage students to plan applications well in advance.


UROP applications are closed and will reopen in Fall 2022 with a deadline on February 17, 2023—for proposals planned in Summer 2023 and/or Academic Year 2023-24.
