Engineering students receive UROP funding for 2022 winter and spring/summer terms

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) at Wayne State University announced that 28 students, including five from the College of Engineering, were offered funding for the winter-spring/summer 2022 award period. The UROP awards are designed to enhance opportunities for students from disciplines across the university to participate in research and creative activities with mentorship from faculty experts.

To be considered for funding, students submitted project proposals sponsored by faculty members with whom they wished to collaborate. Projects were focused on developing and testing a hypothesis or theory using methods relevant to one or more academic disciplines.

Undergraduates involved in research projects can receive grant funding, earn special recognition for their work, obtain financial support to present their results at state and national conferences, and apply to participate in the university's annual Undergraduate Research Conference.

UROP is also accepting applications for spring/summer-fall 2022 funding.
