The Purdue University Graduate School is now accepting applications for the 2013 Summer Research Opportunities program (SROP). The program will be June 2 to July 30, 2013.
SROP encourages talented undergraduate students from social and economic backgrounds that are underrepresented in research careers to pursue graduate education, and to enhance their preparation for graduate study. This program involves intensive research experiences 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 doctoral degree, relevant college coursework and grades, letters of recommendation, and their ability to contribute to the goal of the program. Eligible students must be enrolled in a degree granting program at a U.S. college or university; have a minimum GPA of 3.0; have an interest in pursuing graduate education; and are available to participate in the entire eight-week summer program.
