Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

With the generous support of the Office of the Vice President of Research, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program offers financial assistance for scholarly and creative projects under the mentorship of a faculty member.  Dozens of research projects are funded each year so that undergraduates may undertake ambitious and exciting research endeavors. This competitive program is open to all University of Oklahoma main campus and Health Science Center students who compete for research grants of up to $1,000 each semester.  Students and faculty from across the University discover the benefits of these hands-on research opportunities in laboratories, studios, libraries, and field sites.  At the conclusion of their work, UROP recipients present the results of their research or accounts of their work in progress at the Honors College‚Äôs Undergraduate Research Day, a professional-like conference held in April of each year.
