The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is designed to help historically underrepresented students explore opportunities for graduate study and academic careers. Over the course of nine weeks during the summer, Ohio State SROP participants will conduct research with a faculty mentor on a topic of mutual interest, and participate in activities crucial to preparation for graduate school, including a professional development series. At the end of the summer program, participants present their research at the Research Symposium to faculty, staff, and summer scholars.
The program provides students with a $5,000 stipend, travel, housing, meal plan, and an enriching research experience with a faculty mentor while providing faculty with opportunities to recruit talented and diverse students into their graduate programs.
The program will run from May 30 to July 28, 2023.
Underrepresented students are encouraged to apply. This includes students of color, first-generation college students, and students from low-income families, regardless of race or ethnicity.
SROP is affiliated with the Big Ten Academic Alliance. Informational videos can be found here.
The application deadline is February 10, 2023.
