All UMD UROP applications must be submitted electronically through the University of Minnesota Twin Cities UROP web site.
The application package has THREE parts:
- Application Form (faculty mentors will not be able to submit their recommendations until after the student round closes)
- Faculty Mentor Recommendation Form
- A written proposal; there is NO pre-made form for this. You should prepare your proposal according to the instructions appearing below, using a word processing or page layout program, such as Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. If you wish to include tables, diagrams or figures, they must all fit within a three-page limit. The page margins must be at least one inch on the top and bottom and both sides. The type must be at least 12 points in size. You should use double line spacing, and not have more than 3 lines per vertical inch.
Writing assistance is available free of charge through the Writers’ Workshop, located on the second floor of the Kathryn A. Martin Library. The Workshop’s faculty and graduate student writing consultants are familiar with the UROP guidelines and are eager to work with you on a one-to-one basis at any stage of the writing process. To make an appointment, stop by the Writers’ Workshop desk or visit our website.
If you are having any problems with the application process please contact your college program coordinator. If it is after hours, please e-mail them.
