Summer Research Opportunities Program
Mary Stromberger, vice provost and dean for graduate education, leads Ohio State’s chapter of the Big Ten Academic Alliance’s Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP). SROP enables students from underrepresented backgrounds to explore graduate study and academic careers, all with deeply reduced financial costs. Participants conduct research with a faculty mentor on a topic of mutual interest and participate in activities crucial to preparation for graduate school, including a professional development series.
