Deadlines

Fall and Spring Calls for Proposals
UROP provides funding for research-related supplies and expenses through two separate Calls for Proposals. The Calls will be announced on the UROP Website and distributed to faculty members, students, and the undergraduate counseling offices. The proposal should be prepared by the student applicant and jointly submitted by the student and a faculty mentor. UROP will fund a varied set of projects, with grants normally less than $1,000.

Journal
The UCI Undergraduate Research Journal, published by UROP, is a compilation of outstanding research papers completed by UCI undergraduate students. Works from all schools and disciplines are included. The UROP Student Editorial Board handles the regulation, initial review of papers, and production of the Journal. Final research papers are judged and chosen by the UROP Faculty Advisory Board. All students involved in faculty-mentored research are encouraged to submit their papers for consideration. Papers are accepted during the Spring Quarter. Guidelines are available in the UROP Office.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)
SURP provides funding for UCI Undergraduates from all disciplines who are conducting summer research projects or creative activities under the guidance of UCI faculty members. The program offers students the opportunity to become immersed in a research topic for a full-time ten-week period or the equivalence of 400 hours. SURP Fellows receive a $3,000 stipend.

Symposium
Sponsored by UROP, the Symposium is an annual event that allows undergraduates the opportunity to present their research results in a professional setting. The day’s activities include oral and poster presentations, student performances, a keynote speaker, roundtable discussions, and an awards ceremony. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in this celebrated UCI event. The Call for Abstracts is issued during the Winter Quarter. This year’s Symposium will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2004.
