Description:
The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) was first established in 1986 by the Graduate Deans of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC). The goal of SROP is to introduce domestic underrepresented sophomores and juniors to academic research experiences. Student participants work one-on-one with a faculty mentor giving them an opportunity to experience research and the graduate student experience.

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) launched its SROP in 1986, with a total of six minority undergraduate students. After twenty-five years of hosting this program, UIC has had over one thousand student participants.

The Graduate College invites undergraduates who have a 2.75 (4.0 scale ) 3.75 (5.0 scale) or higher grade point average to apply for participation in SROP. The student may apply to the program already having a research project in mind and a committed faculty mentor or simply by having a research area of interest. In cases where a student has an experienced interest but no mentor, the SROP staff will try to facilitate a match.
