Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program

UROP allows students to conduct research under the guidance of a BU faculty member, either contributing to a larger research project or conducting a research project of their own design. This opportunity is open to undergraduates from all majors. Students can receive academic credit, stipends (through work-study, a UROP grant, or as a mentor-funded assistant), or complete the program as an unpaid volunteer. Interested students should contact professors directly after checking the listing of opportunities listed online. Students can also drop by the UROP office at 143 Bay State Rd with questions, call 617-353-2020 or email urop@bu.edu for more information.
