The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is an intense eight-week program which offers eligible undergraduate students an opportunity to conduct research with distinguished faculty mentors at Penn State. In addition, the program provides weekly professional development workshops, luncheons with the Senior Director of the program, interaction with other programs on campus, and social events.
Applications for the SROP are online at the Committee on Institutional Cooperation’s Web site. Applications for this summer’s SROP will be accepted until the deadline of February 10, 2010.
Graduate Scholars Forums
These regular semester events offer Penn State graduate students a forum where they can come together with other students for lively discussion and participate in professional development areas relating to research, travel, professional and personal growth. Current Penn State graduate students are notified by e-mail when details for the forums are finalized.
McNair Scholars/SROP Forum
Penn State SROP student alumni and McNair Scholars come together to meet with faculty mentors. SROP students, McNair Scholars and faculty mentors will receive e-mail notification of dates and times for these forums as the information becomes available. A current McNair Scholar or alumni of McNair or Summer Research Opportunities Programs elect to share their research through presentation and a question/answer session.
