UROP application process

Step 1: Apply for UROP funding

The first step is to submit your UROP project application.

Step 2: Application review

The CRL committee will review UROP application submissions. Applicants will be notified of their application status by mid-April. A separate application process is required if the mentor would like to be considered for supply funds.

Step 3: Initiate hiring process

Students will be hired directly through the mentor's department following application review. Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) will transfer funds to the mentor's account monthly to pay for the student's participation in the program. Students will follow the hiring practices of their mentor’s academic/unit homeThe mentor will be familiar with the HR/Payroll team for their unit and not be required to follow the DUE process. 

Step 4: Orientation resources for mentors and students

The Office of Student Employment has great resources for mentors who supervise students on UROP projects.

Step 5: Ongoing project resources

Terminating a student’s employment: Please let us know when a student has left your project for another opportunity or if their employment had to be terminated. If a student ends their UROP experience, the project is effectively terminated. A new student cannot be hired to complete the project.
