The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is a gateway to graduate education at Big Ten Academic Alliance universities. The goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented students who pursue graduate study and research careers. SROP helps prepare undergraduates for graduate study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and enrichment activities.


The MSU SROP Program provides an opportunity to combine professional development with applied work experience in your career field. This is also an opportunity for Michigan State University faculty to evaluate you as a potential graduate student. MSU SROP typically convenes the third weekend of May and ends the last weekend of July.
