Office of Undergraduate Research

Welcome to OUR

Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research is a centralized location for undergraduates seeking on-campus research opportunities and faculty seeking enthusiastic, motivated undergraduate students with whom to collaborate. OUR programs that promote this collaborative work are the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), which pairs students with faculty research mentors for academic credit; and the Support for Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) program, which enables faculty research mentors to co-apply with top-performing students to provide an hourly wage for the student's work on a faculty-led research project. Also included under the OUR's umbrella of offerings are travel grants to support undergraduates who are presenting their work at national conferences, and the UR@UWM Summer Research Program.
