Summer Research Opportunity Program for 2013
The UC Berkeley Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) was established to promote access to graduate education among undergraduates who have been educationally or economically disadvantaged, and who may not have had exposure to the academic environment of a research university.
The program offers summer research opportunities in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences for sophomores, juniors, and seniors (not graduating in the summer or spring of 2013, except UC Berkeley students). The National Science Foundation generously provides funding for SROP Psychology students in the field of Social Cultural Processes in Development and Mental Health*. It is an eight-week program that will commence on Sunday, June 2, 2013, and continue through Saturday, July 27, 2013.
The goal of this program is to increase the level of diversity among students entering Ph.D. programs by providing research opportunities under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Special consideration will be given to applicants who have shown potential for success, but may have had limited access to graduate research or other academic opportunities. The program strongly encourages applications from undergraduates who have been educationally or economically disadvantaged, and who show potential to benefit from exposure to the environment of a research university. All applicants will be considered without regard to race or gender.
