Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at Ohio State

The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at Ohio State is a summer research experience designed to help historically underrepresented undergraduates explore opportunities for graduate study and academic careers.  As a participant in this program, students will work with a faculty mentor on a mutually agreed upon area of research and begin to develop the kind of student-professor relationship that is crucial to success in graduate school. The program provides women in science and math, people of color, first-generation and low-income students with research experiences across the university and allows for a meaningful, realistic assessment of each student’s interest in graduate study.  BENEFITS OF OSU SROP: Conduct original research under the supervision of a faculty mentor; 2 semester credits; Earn a $3000 stipend for the 9-week session; and Receive free campus housing and a meal plan. Applications available online at  November 1, 2014. Contact Tiffany Halsell; at (614) 247-6377 or via email to coordinate the application process. Applications must be submitted by Monday, February 9, 2015.  Supplemental materials will be accepted until Sunday, March 1, 2015.
