Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP)  

The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is a gateway to graduate education at CIC universities. The goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented students (US citizens and permanent residents) who pursue graduate study and research careers in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. SROP provides intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and enrichment activities.  Applicants should have a strong interest in pursuing a Ph.D. Benefits include a stipend, travel, and room and board. NATIONAL DEADLINE: November 1-early February (rolling)  

Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP)  

Since 1992, the Leadership Alliance has encouraged students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities to pursue competitive applications to graduate schools and research careers (Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D.) in the academic, public and private sectors. SR-EIP is a gateway to ongoing resources, mentoring and professional networks to support all participants along their chosen career path.  With one application, apply for a research experience at three of the 22 summer research sites. DEADLINE: February 1 (applications accepted as early as November 1)   

Amgen Scholars Program 

Amgen Scholars allows undergraduates from across the globe to participate in cutting-edge research opportunities at world-class institutions. You must have an interest in pursuing a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. to apply.  17 leading institutions across the U.S., Europe, and Japan currently host the summer program. US students may apply to either US or Japanese sites. Undergraduate participants undertake a research project under top faculty, share a cohort-based experience of seminars and networking events, and take part in a symposium in their respective region (U.S., Europe or Japan) where they meet their peers, learn about biotechnology, and hear from leading scientists. No previous research experience is necessary and you do not need to be a biology major to apply. Financial support is a critical component of the Amgen Scholars Program. Please note that details vary by host institution. See each institution's Amgen Scholars Program website for more information. DEADLINE: February 2   Leadership Alliance (see Freshmen)
