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 undergraduate students who apply for research grants of up to $1,000 each semester.  Students 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’s Undergraduate Research Day, a conference showcasing undergraduate research and creative activity held in April of each year.

In addition to the application form, to apply students will need to submit:

  • A summary of the project that also explains specifically what the student will be doing during the research period
  • A detailed, itemized budget
  • A letter of support from the sponsoring professor

***UROP Applications will open January 2022***
