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.
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 in the online application. The following document can be used to prepare your application responses: Standard Application. Please note that this is not the official UROP application; a link to that can be found at the bottom of the page.
There is a character limit for each answer field. 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. Our application system does not notify your mentor that you have applied nor does it direct them to a page to fill out the recommendation. Direct your mentor to faculty recommendation forms for the online mentor recommendation (this page is Kerberos protected).
