Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) – Mini Grant Application

DUE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD @ 5:00PM | This Mini Grant Program represents a second round of CU Denver Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) grants administered by the Office of Undergraduate Experiences in 2016. UROP is a competitive program designed to financially support undergraduate research, most broadly understood as including all scholarly and creative activities. UROP provides an opportunity to extend learning outside the traditional classroom, laboratory, or studio. This fall, we expect to award approximately 20 UROP awards of up to $500 each.

Any degree-seeking undergraduate student at CU Denver who has completed a minimum of 15 semester hours of coursework with a cumulative CU grade point average of ≥ 2.5 may apply. As part of their budget, students may request stipends, funding to cover dissemination costs, and support to defray the cost of materials. All UROP awardees, including those who graduate prior to May 2017, are required to present the results of their grant at the CU Denver Research and Creative Activities Symposium (RaCAS), April 28, 2017.
