Summer Research Program (SRP)

The Summer Research Program (SRP) 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.

SRP is made up of 8 programs which are either 8 or 10 weeks long. Each program has a cohort and a Coordinator. While requirements for each program are different, program coordinators work together to create a summer community that brings together students from all the programs. ALL SRP students are paid a stipend!
