The link at the bottom of this page will take you to the official online application. Only online applications will be accepted—paper or emailed copies of the application will not be accepted.
The following document can be used to prepare your UROP answers: Application Questions. Please note that this is not the official UROP application; a link to that can be found at the bottom of the page.
Preparing your responses requires planning, thought, and time. We recommend drafting your responses for each section in a separate document. Then, after careful editing, copy/paste your answers into the appropriate boxes on the online application.
There is a character limit for each answer field (character counts are outlined at “Application Questions”). A character is a single letter, punctuation mark, or space. Most word processing applications provide a character count tool, which is not the same as word count. You will not be able to submit your application if you exceed the character count for the answer fields.
Student applications must be submitted by noon on the due date. Mentor recommendations are due by midnight on the application due date. Spring 2016 student applications and mentor recommendations are due on December 2. Direct your mentor to faculty recommendation forms for your online mentor recommendation.
