Description: 

he Purdue Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) aims to enhance diversity in academic, government and industry positions that require graduate degrees. We want to encourage talented undergraduate students in research careers from underrepresented social and economic backgrounds to pursue a graduate education, and to enhance their preparation for graduate study. The program is supported by the Graduate School, Center for Cancer Research, Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate, and various schools and departments across Purdue.

During this eight-week summer program, you’ll have the opportunity to conduct intensive research with faculty mentors. All qualified students, including but not limited to African-American, Asian American, Hispanic American and Native American, are encouraged to apply. Participants will be selected on the basis of their interest in pursuing a graduate degree, relevant college coursework and grades, letters of recommendation, and their ability to contribute to the goal of the program.
   

Benefits: 

SROP provides you with round-trip transportation and University housing on campus at Hilltop for the duration of the program. The Hilltop Apartments, large enough to hold two scholars, are equipped with small kitchenettes so you can prepare meals while on campus.

You’ll receive a generous stipend to aid in expenses for the duration of the program. You’ll be required to work 40 hours a week on your research project, which will be supervised by faculty members and/or their research team(s). You’ll be assigned to a graduate student coordinator who will work closely with you to ensure you have a productive research experience while at Purdue.
