Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) in the Division of Undergraduate Education encourages and facilitates research and creative activities by undergraduates from all schools and academic areas at UCI. Research opportunities are available not only from every discipline, interdisciplinary program and school, but also from many outside agencies, including national laboratories, industrial partners and other universities.


UROP offers assistance to students and faculty through all phases of the research process, whether it is with proposal writing, developing research plans through project management skills, awarding grants to fund research projects, scholarly journal writing through the UCI Undergraduate Research Journal, or presenting results of the research or creative project at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium.
