Welcome to the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program!

UROP is here to help undergraduate students engage in faculty-mentored research and creative work. On this website you can find opportunity listings, funding for your project and formal presentations, venues to present your work, and much more. The UROP office is open and we look forward to hearing from our students, staff, and faculty. While we are not taking in-person meetings at this time due to the current COVID situation, please feel free to reach us by email (urop@hawaii.edu), phone (808-956-7492), or by scheduling an online appointment via Zoom using this link or the button below and we would be happy to assist you. Mahalo!

What is UROP?

Each year, UROP awards approximately $500,000 in funding to students working on faculty-mentored creative work or research projects or presenting at conferences. Students have used funding to conduct field research abroad, purchase critical supplies, earn stipends and more. Watch the video to learn more about how UROP serves undergraduate students at UHM.
