UMD Highlights Research Conducted by Students

Slots are still open in the UROP program and students are encouraged to apply.

DULUTH, Minn. – More than 50 students conducted research of their choice with the help of UMD’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program.

Students shared the findings of their research at showcase Thursday afternoon.

Aisles of posters showed the hard work students put in to creating these projects.

The UROP awards students with a scholarship twice a year to conduct research.

The Interim Associate Dean of Liberal Arts says this program is intended to help students build on academic interests.

“Its outstanding. This is what we want students to leave UMD with the kind of experience that will allow them to further their career and go out in the world and do great things,” said Jason Ford.

One student is grateful for the program because she believes it will help her in reaching future endeavors.

“For me I am looking to go to grad so having these opportunities as an undergrad to build my resume and to build my experiences in areas applicable in graduate school is really super important,” said UMD senior Delaney Wilder.

Through the UROP program Wilder was lucky enough to present her research at a national conference in Georgia.

Slots are still open in the UROP program and students are encouraged to apply.

The next application deadline to be accepted in program for the upcoming semester is October 17, 2019.
