Tips for Finding a UROP
You may begin a UROP any time during your academic career. Even though the semester may have already started, a UROP can start as soon as arrangements (applications, funding, registration) are complete. Although there are no universal starting dates, UROP projects are grouped into the following time periods: fall; fall/IAP; IAP; IAP/spring; spring and summer. UROP applications including your research proposal are due by the applicable UROP deadline for the term/summer.
This section provides some helpful tips and advice to assist you in your UROP search. If you have additional questions, please feel free to consult UROP staff for advice and support in finding a UROP that is right for you. You can also attend UROP staff office hours on Tuesdays, 3-4pm EST. Zoom Meeting ID: 936 7740 7846 (MIT credentials required).
