Research at the University is conducted in every academic discipline. The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program allows undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct their own research or complete a creative activity. To help students get started with their ideas, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program offers workshops throughout the academic year. Students then write a proposal for research or a creative activity in any area of interest. If their proposal is approved, they will work in consultation with a faculty adviser and are also awarded stipends of up to $1,400 and paid expenses up to $300--an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to get experience in their field, work with leading experts across our diverse array of majors, and get paid!
As the end of the spring semester approaches students are preparing to showcase their research findings. As part of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), over 250 undergraduate students will present their research findings next Wednesday in the Great Hall of Coffman Memorial Union. The Undergraduate Symposium offers undergraduate students a platform to showcase their results from research they've been conducting over the course of the past year. The symposium will highlight research accross a broad spectrum of topics from students in all of the University of Minnesota's colleges!
