The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa has launched the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) to help undergraduates at UH Mānoa find research opportunities in their field. The new program will also help students at UH Mānoa with research funding, thanks to the Chancellor’s Office and Honors Program.
“More than 100 research entities have already expressed an interest in listing their research opportunities with us on the new website,” said UROP Council Chair Terry Hunt from the UH Mānoa campus. “We’re excited to be greeted with such a strong response from the research community in Hawai‘i.”
The program has earmarked funding for direct research grants to undergraduate students at UH Mānoa. UROP opened its research funding application period on Monday, October 10, 2011.
“These funds should be available each year, so we look forward to reviewing all student research grant proposals,” added Hunt. “We want to help cultivate original undergraduate research, and this program will make that possible for students at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.”
