Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities (UROPs) are hugely valuable to students, enabling them to put theory into practice, develop valuable skills, and discover unexpected research interests and/or career paths. Since most research grants don’t cover undergraduates, we are always seeking funding so that we can offer more UROPs.

If you would like to help us do this, please donate online. Thank you.
