The April 9, 2020 Showcase has been CANCELLED  

As of March 16, 2020, undergraduate students are not to return to campus to work on research projects. We recognize that it is in the best interest of students in credit-bearing research programs to complete their programs on time and are working to make this process as smooth as possible.  We also want students on research scholarships like UROP awards to complete their work so they can receive their final scholarship payment.  

Within the limitations of current conditions, we have come up with some options for students (including those graduating) to finish their projects.  Students must still complete the ending requirements but we understand that projects may take unforeseen turns.  Here's a link to our options:   It's up to the student and mentor to find a workable solution to completing the project.

The University of Minnesota's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) offers financial awards to full-time undergraduates for research, scholarly, or creative projects undertaken in partnership with a faculty member. 


Monday July 6, 2020 for fall 2020 projects
