Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)


UROP GENERAL INFORMATION


The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a competitive grants program out of the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities and the Office of Academic Achievement designed to financially support original faculty-mentored research, creative, and other scholarly activities undertaken by University of Colorado Denver and CU Anschutz Medical Campus outside the traditional classroom.


One of the important collaborations for undergraduate research is the mentoring from a faculty member experienced in discipline-specific research or creative methodology.  Whether the UROP project is student or faculty initiated, it is important that a UROP student work closely with the faculty mentor to define realistic goals and a timeframe for the project, and support the student preparation of the final report.


Approximately 20-40 UROP Full Grant applications are awarded each spring semester. The UROP spring applications window is from mid-January until the application deadline, which is typically the first week in March. Funds to support a mini grant UROP award is  available during the fall semester. The UROP fall applications window is from mid-July until the application deadline, which is typically the third week in September. The electronic UROP applications can be downloaded from this website page. A detailed rubric is provided in a link that can guide a student's submission and the criteria that should be included for the Reviewing Committee’s consideration.


Only degree-seeking undergraduate students on either campus at CU Denver who have completed a minimum of 15 semester hours of coursework with a cumulative CU GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible to apply.  Recipients must be continuously enrolled as undergraduates at CU Denver to receive funding.  Students who are entering a graduate or professional program during the award period are not eligible to apply or receive funds.  The cost of tuition is not covered, as a UROP grant is not a scholarship.  All UROP awardees are required to present the results of their grant at the CU Denver annual Research and Creative Activities Symposium (RaCAS) and complete a final report.


For additional questions not covered on this website page, please contact Mary Baitinger at the Office of Undergraduate Experiences at 303-315-2133 or mary.baitinger@ucdenver.edu​.
