Thirty years of SROP: Michigan Celebrates another Successful Summer of Research and Opportunity

Aug 01, 2016
The University of Michigan celebrated 30 years of preparing students from underrepresented backgrounds to pursue doctorate degrees during its Summer Research Opportunity Program symposium on Thursday, July 28, in the Rackham Graduate School Building.

SROP, one of U-M's most dynamic recruitment efforts, is intended to prepare students outside institutions to pursue Ph.D.s in the biological, physical sciences, engineering and social sciences. During the annual 8-week program, between 30 to 50 undergraduates from around the U.S. and Puerto Rico reside on campus while they conduct research alongside U-M researchers. Along with free room and board, they receive a $4,000 stipend, professional development classes, (graduate record exam) training and a fee waiver if they choose to apply to a Rackham doctoral program.
