The CIC SROP Program is for you if you are interested in a challenging research experience.  The SROP program strives to prepare young investigators to achieve their goals of pursuing graduate work and of becoming tomorrow's academic leaders.  Students receive first-hand exposure to the graduate school experience and to faculty life by being paired with a faculty mentor whose work is closely related to your academic interests and career goals.  You will choose among opportunities in Biological Sciences, Engineering, Humanities, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, or Social Sciences and will work with your faculty mentor either on an individual basis or as part of a research team.   

The CIC Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is an award winning program designed to provide promising underrepresented undergraduate students with in-depth research experiences.  Each student plays an active role in identifying the area of study and a faculty mentor to work with.  Explore research opportunities at Iowa that can lead to doctoral degrees.
