Find Projects & Apply


Finding a UROP is the first step. Here you will find advice and resources to get you started - from preparing to participate and finding projects - to officially applying once you've secured a project.

Application Requirements

You are required to do the following each term after you have found your project:

  • Write a research proposal - detailing the term's research plan, the student's role and goals for the given semester.
  • Submit an online application - Note: Wellesley College Students must follow additional cross-registration requirements.
  • Complete UROP evaluations - due at the end of each term/summer. Feedback is required from both students and their faculty supervisors, each focused on the UROP experience, progress, plans for future collaboration, accomplishments, etc. Evaluations are submitted via the online UROP application system.
