The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is designed to support collaborations between UM-Flint undergraduate students and faculty researchers. UROP allows students to earn paid (or volunteer), hands-on research experiences working along faculty on cutting-edge projects. Additionally, faculty are afforded the opportunity to mentor enthusiastic and talented students.
As a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan-Flint, University of Michigan-Dearborn, and Oakland University, MOM showcases the results of student-faculty collaboration in research and creative activities from across all academic disciplines. Students who present at MOM not only have a unique opportunity to share the results of their work, but also have the opportunity to publish their work in our annual Meeting of Minds Journal.
Several donors to UM-Flint have expressed an interest in encouraging student research and generously donated funds to provide support for student-initiated research and for travel to attend professional conferences. These endowed funds provide support for original student research ideas, and are intended to encourage individual or group work.
