What is the Mentoring Grant?

UROP is committed to promoting and expanding research and creative work opportunities for undergraduate students across campus. To increase undergraduate student participation in these opportunities during the summer, UROP is awarding up to $10,000 per proposal through the Mentoring Grant for Summer Undergraduate Research and Creative Work! The grant will be awarded to eligible University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) mentors of UHM undergraduate students conducting research and creative work projects in the Summer. Grant recipients must plan to use 100% of the funds to support the students’ projects.

Application Information

The application cycle is open from February 1 and will close on March 1, 2024, 11:59 pm HST (one-week extended deadline!). Applicants are encouraged to review the 2024 Request for Proposals before sending in their application. Applications must be submitted via the InfoReady Platform.

UROP encourages applications from all disciplines, and is particularly interested in receiving applications from non-STEM fields and from early-career (tenure-track, non-tenured) mentors in any discipline. For questions, contact urop@hawaii.edu, or visit the FAQs page.
