Each spring, we invite UROP students to nominate research mentors who have demonstrated exceptional guidance and teaching in a research setting. In addition to faculty, nominees may include instructors, lecturers, graduate students and other research affiliates, who provided UROP supervision anytime between the summer and spring of the given academic year.
See the list of Outstanding UROP Mentor Award Recipients for prior year awardees.
Please check back in early spring of 2024 for details on nominating mentors for the 2023-2024 cycle.
Nominations can be based on a variety of factors, including:
- Quality of mentorship, supervision, and support;
- Availability to students;
- Guidance in research;
- Overall commitment to undergraduate research.
