Welcome to UROP!

UROP is designed to help Boston University full-time undergraduate students become involved in research.

Our website provides a forum for BU faculty members to identify full-time BU undergraduates to participate in research projects. BU students can perform research on a volunteer basis, for academic credit, through the work-study program, as a mentor-funded assistant, or with the aid of a UROP award.

UROP provides financial support for student research stipends, supplies, and travel. Over the years, we have funded a broad range of research projects in the humanities, arts, social sciences, natural sciences, medicine, education, and the arts. Research through UROP must take place under the guidance of a BU faculty mentor, and is defined as any scientific or scholarly activity that contributes to the production of new knowledge.
