The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program provides a variety of grants to undergraduate students at the University of St. Thomas. Several of these grants are designed to provide students with funding that will allow them to focus on a semester- or summer-long research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Other grants are designed to reimburse students for travel expenses related to carrying out or presenting faculty-mentored research. Students in any major at any stage in their studies are eligible to apply for the grants available through UROP.
