The Symposium is the culminating event for all students participating in UROP. It celebrates the partnerships created between students and U-M faculty research mentors, as well as serves as a conference where students present their research projects and learn more about the research their fellow UROP students have worked on throughout the program.

This year’s Symposium will showcase presentations from five research fellowships:

  • Biomedical and Life Sciences Summer Fellowship
  • Community College Summer Fellowship Program
  • Engineering Summer Research Fellowship
  • Intel Semiconductor Research Corporation Summer Fellowship
  • Women and Gender Summer Fellowship Program

The Community College Summer Research Program is a division of UROP. The CCSFP is for community college students who are interested in transferring to U-M or any other university. For 10 weeks, students work full-time on the U-M campus in Ann Arbor with faculty researchers representing all 19 schools and colleges at U-M.
