Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at The Ohio State University

May 24, 2016 - July 30, 2016.
What is SROP?
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. Participants work with a faculty mentor within their area of study and begin to develop a collegate-mentor relationship that is crucial to success in graduate school.

The program provides research experiences across the university to eligible students and allows for a meaningful, realistic assessment of their interest in graduate study. We promote and support the student/professor relationship that is so crucial to success in graduate school and beyond. The program offers a weekly professional development workshop and a culminating research conference where students present their work to members of the university community.
