As you prepare your application for travel funding from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), please read these instructions carefully. For more information on travel funding, eligibility, and any restrictions,
please consult our website here.
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. In order for your application to be reviewed by the UROP committee, it must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from your mentor.
Travel applications will be reviewed on a bi-monthly basis with application deadlines of October 1st, December 1st, February 1st, April 1st, June 1st, and August 1st. Your application will be reviewed in the cycle in which your application and letter of recommendation have both been received.
If you have any questions or encounter difficulties, please contact us at
