Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

What is UROP?

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), provides research experiences for students throughout the summer or for a summer plus the academic year. Participating in an undergraduate research experience can be a pivotal experience for students. Through careful mentoring by a dedicated faculty member, undergraduate researchers experience the thrill of discovery, build relationships within research communities, and gain irreplaceable skills and attitudes to prepare them to make a positive difference in the world. Research projects are done by individual students or by groups of students, always with a dedicated faculty mentor. 

Your impact

Your support will help us expand our research offerings by directly funding stipends for summer research students. Your gift to the UROP fund will enable undergraduate research teams to work on projects like developing apps to help improve the navigation skills of young people with visual disabilities, creating science communication tools to educate communities after natural disasters, prototyping intelligent powered wheelchairs and developing an innovative framework for creating training opportunities for all of Olin’s tools and fabrication resources.

Your gift for Giving Day will be matched if... 

If your gift is an increase from last fiscal year, then the increased dollars will be matched by a generous donor!

If your gift is new, as in you missed giving last fiscal year, then the gift will be matched by a generous donor!  


Please join us today in enriching the research experiences of Olin undergraduates by choosing a support level. Thank you!
