For starters, Mathematica does not use 0 as the starting index
for arrays. So, if V is a 13 element array your code needs to be:
For[i=1,i<=13,
rho = (i-1)*25;
V[[i]] = UserFunction[0.5];
i++]
But this isn't a very efficient way to do things in Mathematica.
As written, it appears you are assigning every element of V the
same value, UserFunction[0.5]. A more efficient way to do this
would be
Table[V[[i]]=UserFunction[0.5],{i,13}]
Now assuming you actually intended the argument to UserFunction
to be 0.5*rho (why compute a value for rho if it is never used?)
and UserFunction has the attribute listable.
V=UserFunction[.5 Range[0, 300,25]]
or if UserFunction doesn't have the attribute listable
V = UserFunction/@(.5 Range[0, 300, 25])
