    The UROP program makes available a host of fantastic opportunities for undergraduates to work alongside professors and researchers, learning from the best in their fields.

    Cons

    UROP opportunities can occasionally be difficult to come by, but if you're persistent, you can absolutely track down opportunities that fit your interests.

    Keep on funding UROPs, and maybe consider raising the UROP wage. Continue to provide opportunities like the UROP program to students.
