Summer Research Program (SRP)

The Summer Research Program equips students with the skills to become research scholars, encourage students' pursuit of graduate study, and increase graduate school enrollment among underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation college students.

Get Paid to do Research!

SRP is made up of 6 programs which are either 8 or 10 week programs. Each program has a cohort and a Coordinator. While requirements for each program are different, Coordinators work together to create a summer community. ALL SRP students are paid a stipend!
