Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP)

SROP is a gateway to graduate education at Big Ten universities. The program helps prepare undergraduates for graduate study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and through enrichment activities.

  • Program components include: research stipend, university housing, research presentations, workshops on the GRE and applying to graduate school, and social activities.
  • You’ll leave the program with a significant research experience with a faculty mentor, a ready-to-use oral and poster presentation of your research results, a rich multicultural experience, and new friends.
  • You’ll enhance your academic and research skills, giving you an advantage as a graduate applicant.
