Dear UROP Applicant,
IMPORTANT: For Fall 2020, International students conducting research outside of the US are not eligible to receive salary funding from Boston University. Therefore, we cannot accept applications from international students conducting research outside of the US.
As you prepare your application for funding from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), please read these instructions carefully. For more information on funding, eligibility, and any restrictions, please consult our website here.
Only online submissions of applications will be accepted. Students can submit only one application per semester.
A completed UROP application consists of this online application form and a letter of recommendation form completed by your BU faculty mentor. An online submission of your application is due by 12:00PM (noon) on the day of the deadline. Your faculty mentor must complete an online recommendation form by 11:59PM on the day of the deadline. Please discuss time commitment, award type, and expectations with your mentor prior to submitting your application. If there are any time or award request discrepancies between you and your mentor, we will consider you for the lowest requested amount.
Upon submitting this application, your mentor will receive a prompt to submit your letter of recommendation along with a copy of your application. With that said, it is your responsibility to ensure your faculty mentor completes the letter of recommendation form. If your mentor is looking to submit their letter of recommendation, direct them to the "for mentors" page on the UROP website, where they will log in with their Kerberos information and complete the form.
Keep your responses within the word limit of each field; you may not continue your responses in the Appendix.
If you have any questions or encounter difficulties, it is your responsibility to contact the UROP Office at email@example.com or call 617-353-2020.
