Submit a Mentor Award Nomination

    UROP celebrates research and creative mentors with the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award, which recognizes CU Boulder faculty supporting students on research and creative projects in all fields of study.

      Students are encouraged to nominate their mentors regardless of program funding, and UROP welcomes nominations from early stage researchers and creative practitioners.  Portions of student nominations might be shared with their mentors after awards are announced in the spring.

      To support their work, Mentor Award recipients will have the option to award an Assistantship to an eligible undergraduate of their choosing in the next grant cycle.
