Description: 

The Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) is an eight-week competitive research experience at Northwestern University for sophomores and juniors from colleges and universities across the United States. All fields of research at Northwestern are open to SROP participants including the social sciences and humanities, physical sciences, chemical and biological sciences, technology, math and engineering fields.

Each selected participant is thoughtfully matched with a Northwestern faculty member and will carry out an appropriate full-time research project. Some faculty mentors have agreed to work with students to craft an independent research project based on the studentís interests, and other mentors will have students contribute to an ongoing project.

The research training is coupled with activities that prepare students for the graduate school application process, success in graduate school, and the development of their professional careers. Workshop topics include preparation for GREs, research presentations and communication skills. The summer research experience culminates with students writing a final paper and presenting their findings, and many SROP students go on to present their research at national research conferences. The SROP is designed to position students for success in their graduate and professional careers.
