Unique Commitment Undergraduate Research

At BU, undergrad ideas are not underappreciated.

Very few universities support undergraduate research as strongly as BU. Our Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides funding for faculty-mentored research in the humanities, natural sciences, medicine, arts, and education. Established in 1997, UROP has helped more than 3,000 undergrads with projects ranging from accounting to zebrafish genetics. Funding comes from the University, individual faculty grants, alumni and corporate donations, government, and private foundations.

What’s new with UROP?

Plenty. There’s always something fascinating going on in UROP research. Read some of the most recent highlights on BU Today.
