Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP)

Summer Research Opportunities Program

Dates: June 3 - July 26, 2024

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign offers a summer research program that provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to explore careers in research. The program at Illinois provides students with an experience that will help strengthen their knowledge, skills and understanding of graduate school.

Since 1986, the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at Illinois has brought talented undergraduate students from across the US and its territories to our campus as an introduction to graduate study, research and the admission process.

The many activities offered through the SROP give participants an opportunity to establish important relationships with faculty in their respective fields of study and conduct graduate-level research under the supervision of a renowned University of Illinois faculty member. Participants will also become acquainted with the culture of graduate school and learn what is needed and expected of them as graduate students in their discipline at the University of Illinois.
