The goal of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is to increase the number of undergraduates pursuing marine science careers by encouraging and supporting specific undergraduate research activities. Students propose, carry out, and report results of a research project related to an existing project funded by Sea Grant. UROP, begun in 1992, has funded undergraduate research for more than 50 students at Louisiana State University.
