At this time the EECS and ChemE Departments have confirmed that they will participate in the SuperUROP Program and provide funding to most of their students working with their faculty.

We hope that AeroAstro, CEE, MechE, and Microbiome+Biological Engineering to participate in SuperUROP for 2019-2020, with the potential of providing departmental SuperUROP funding for the research component. We will update this statement when/if these departments confirm their participation.

The MIT option is for students who are not in the listed departments. In this case, there will not be departmental SuperUROP funding. There is possibly funding from your supervisor or from the UROP office or you can earn credit for the research component.

CS+HASS projectsThere is funding available for joint CS and HASS SuperUROP projects: please check the box on the application form and fill in the additional details. Some CS+HASS projects are listed under EECS and SHASS.
