Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)

The CU Denver Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a competitive program designed to financially support research projects for CU Denver undergraduate students.  Undergraduate research is an opportunity to extend learning outside the traditional classroom, laboratory, or studio; to utilize creativity and curiosity in the development of new knowledge, art, or innovation; to become more self-confident and independent; to gain experience in presenting results to peers and mentors. UROP supports student projects under the broadest possible definition of “research.”  All declared undergraduate students, independent of college or school, are eligible for UROP research funds.

Students wishing to apply for research funds should fill out the Philosophy Travel Request Form and submit it to Dr. David L. Hildebrand, Chair of the Department. Decisions on funding will be made as quickly as possible, likely in less than two weeks.
