Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP)

The University of Wisconsin–Madison offers a number of Summer Research Opportunities to undergraduate students. These are unique opportunities for undergraduates to work closely with faculty mentors and graduate students in their major discipline. Students accepted into research programs are matched with faculty whose expertise and interests match the student’s research interest. Students gain valuable skills for success in post-graduate studies and careers in their chosen field. Upon completing their summer research, students have the opportunity to present and receive reviews of their individual work. The SROP goal is to create a diverse academic environment by increasing the number of traditionally underrepresented students in UW–Madison graduate programs and ultimately the professoriate.

The 2020 SROP application opens on November 1, 2019. Apply for 2020 SROP here. The application is due February 15, 2020. The program will run from May 26 to July 31, 2020. If you have questions about a specific program, see the program’s website, below, for contact information.
