From Aristotle and Plato to Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis H. Sullivan, students and their mentors have long been collaborating to produce works of scholarly merit. The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) enhances undergraduate education by funding students engaged in scholarly research, creative, and entrepreneurial activities. Students work in collaboration with faculty at the Downtown Denver Campus and Anschutz Medical Campus. UROP projects can be designed around the activities of a faculty mentor or designed independently by a student, or team of students, and endorsed by a faculty mentor.
UROP was established at CU Denver in 1994 and is coordinated by the Office of Undergraduate Experiences on the Downtown Denver Campus. Over the past five years, the program has provided $215,720 in funding for student research and creative projects ranging from the creation and installation of museum exhibits to medical research.
The 2014-15 application will open in mid-January 2014. Current UROP students who have questions or need information may contact the Office of Undergraduate Experiences at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 315-2133. Interested potential applicants are welcome to contact us for more information.
