Research Mentors

UROP Research Mentors are faculty and post-doc researchers who provide undergraduate student researchers an opportunity to engage in research activities that help them learn about the pursuit of knowledge within an academic discipline. This early exposure to research fosters a valuable academic experience for students. Through this collaboration, students gain research skills and mentorship that lead to academic retention, a more positive undergraduate experience and paths to graduate school.

In addition, Research Mentors gain significant contributions and creative insights to their research work through this unique teaching opportunity.

UROP administers several fellowships in the summer. We are currently recruiting research projects for our summer fellows: Community College Summer Research Fellowship (CCSFP), the Women and Gender Summer Fellowship Program (WAGSFP), Biomedical and Life Science Fellowship, Engineering Fellowship, and Center for Human Growth and Development Fellowship. To renew or submit a new project for Summer, please follow this link.  

If you wish to mentor one of our summer fellows, please submit your research project. Keep in mind that most UROP fellowships require students to work full time 32-40 hours per week for 9 weeks so research projects should be structured in such a way that students have enough work. You can find more information about the fellowships we sponsor below.
