Dear Plant Biology colleagues,
I encourage you to share this summer research opportunity for under-
represented minority (URMs) undergraduates who are interested in attending 
graduate school. The summer program intensive, with research and faculty 
mentors, prepares URMs for graduate study. 
Deadline: The CIC SROP application is accepted November 1, 2014, until 
February 10, 2015. 

Conveniently, the CIC SROP application allows you to apply to a variety of 
widely-recognized summer research programs at participating CIC institutions 
using a *single application.* 

The list of participating programs (pasted at bottom) includes a number of the 
key US institutions that are highly notable for Arabidopsis (and other plant) 
biology research and education.


The Summer Research Opportunities Program is offered by a consortium of big 10 
universities and the University of Chicago.


The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is designed to encourage 
historically underrepresented students to explore opportunities for graduate 
study and academic careers during their undergraduate years. 

The goals of SROP are:
• Identification and development of potential students
• Outreach and engagement with faculty across a network of university 
• Recruitment of students
• Retention of students who participate in SROP, as well as others
• Improve the campus climate

Participating Institutions that Undergraduates may apply to via the 
application process (all via a single application)

University of Chicago
University of Illinois
Indiana University
University of Iowa
University of Maryland
University of Michigan
Michigan State University
University of Minnesota
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Northwestern University
Ohio State University
