The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) resides in the Office of Undergraduate Studies. We house the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), the Undergraduate Research Scholar Designation (URSD), hold the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) in conjunction with the Honors College, and publish the annual Undergraduate Research Abstracts Journal. the OUR hosts workshops on research-related topics, offers small research grants, travel grants, and advising for aspiring undergraduate student researchers. The OUR also provides a connection to numerous presentation and publication opportunities on a local, state and nation-wide basis.

The mission of the University Of Utah Office Of Undergraduate Research is
