Project Completion


All of your obligations for successful completion of UROP requirements are listed below. These are the same requirements as those stipulated in the student Memorandum of Agreement signed by you and your faculty mentor. Every recipient must fulfill each requirement individually; groups have two exceptions in that they must all fulfill the Undergraduate Showcase requirement together and must submit one comprehensive receipt report.

All requirements are due by 5 pm one week before the last day of instruction of the semester you indicated as the completion semester in your timeline, keep us updated of any changes. Please check with the UH calendar about the date as it will change according to the semester.



Receipt Report
This is a report of how you spent your funding in comparison to your approved budget (for groups this is your overall, not individualized budget). You must save all receipts from all purchases made with UROP funds, except for M&IE, and submit all as one PDF:

  • Cover Sheet
    • Includes the table of your approved budget (including stipend as last line item) with each item numbered
      • If a budget revision was approved, please use latest approved budget
    • Additional column to indicate all actual expenses made
    • Additional column to state any differences with explanations
    • Additional column to state receipt number if non-consecutive line items are on one receipt (if applicable)
    • The last row should indicate the total spent and the remaining balance.
  • Stipend table (if applicable)
    • Indicates hours worked
    • Summarizes assignments/accomplishments/obstacles
      • Electronic copies of each receipt following the cover sheet
    • Numbered and in order of table on cover sheet

The report should be submitted exactly once by the deadline. Please save this PDF as: lastname.firstname.REC  and email to Groups save and submit this document once for the entire group as “Gx.[first alphabetically occurring last name of group members].[corresponding first name].REC”

If you are unable to provide documentation for partial funds, or have unspent funds, please email your acknowledgement to refund those specific unspent funds. We will process the reversal of the unused funds to your MyUH account. Your MyUH account will reflect a charge of that specific amount once processed (approximately 2 weeks); you will then be able to make payment through your MyUH account.  The UROP office does not accept any payments directly, all funding goes through the MyUH system. Please review the examples of receipt reports below for reference, although your report should be based on your approved budget.

Photo Submission
Please submit photos of yourself, your group, and your presentation. Please note that we may use the photos for our website and/or other promotional materials for UROP, so feel free to be creative! Please send an email with the subject line “lastname – Photo Requirement” and in the email include where the photo was taken and a brief description of the photo. Please sign and attach a scan of the Media Release (please name the file “lastname.firstname.REL”) and the actual photo file named “lastname.firstname.PHO.jpg” to that email.

Undergraduate Showcase
As a UROP recipient you are required to share your completed research or creative works at the Spring Undergraduate Showcase. At the event you will share an oral presentation (12 min) and have the option to do a poster session as well. If you choose to create a poster for your research or creative works, include the UROP logo in the upper right side of your poster. Registration opens in September. Please check the Showcase website for updates.

Only UROP Project recipients graduating at the end of Fall semester will be able to present at the Fall Undergraduate Showcase.

Completion Report
The final requirement for your UROP project is a completion report. In the completion report you will summarize your research findings, accomplishments, and experiences according to your original approved proposal. Your completion report should follow the same format as the written proposal and must be no longer than three pages, single-spaced, 12-point-font. You must also include a final student evaluation section in the completion report briefly describing your experience with UROP as a program. Please save this PDF as: lastname.firstname.COMP
Since this is a report of your personal experiences you should not cc your mentor or any group members. Please note that group members must report and submit their experiences individually from their respective email accounts.

Mentor Evaluation
At the culmination of your project, be sure to have your mentor fill out the online Mentor Evaluation Form
