The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) offers students and mentors the opportunity to work together on research or creative projects. The petitioner must be an official partner of the faculty of the UHM who otherwise does not meet the requirements of the UroP mentors (see above). UROP will verify the official membership of all petitioners to the UHM Office of Human Resources. We recognize that the traditions of research and tutoring vary considerably from discipline to discipline. In order to provide a more inclusive list of proposals, we`d like to hear from you! How have you adapted your tutoring practices and/or your research for distance students? Do you have any suggestions that we can share? Let us know here. We update this page with your entries. Successful applicants will show a clear curriculum and a strong tutoring plan. Applicants should clearly describe the proposed student project, as well as the schedule and related activities. Proposals must include a justified budget that clearly indicates how the funds are used to directly support the student project. We know from years of experience that there are several keys to creating an effective partnership between students and research mentors.

We`ve summarized the most common suggestions in the list below. No matter what step you are in the tutoring process, we hope this list will be useful for you if you refine your own distance tutoring practice. The limitations of COVID-19 research pose unique challenges for researchers and their mentors. Many mentors are concerned that they will not be able to continue to support science students because they are used to supporting research in person.
The current situation requires us to find new and creative ways to involve students in useful research.
