About UROP

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a unit of the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation. We support undergraduate participation in research and scholarship at the University of Oregon through the administration of undergraduate fellowship and grant programs and through providing advising, support, and coaching to students seeking to get involved in research.
