Canada Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP)

The Summer Research Opportunities Programme (SROP) aims to ultimately diversity faculty by providing undergraduate students who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Colour (BIPOC) equitable access to graduate school preparation, planning and admission.

SROP Students will conduct a small research project in collaboration with a faculty mentor over the course of 8 weeks, from June to July. The remainder of the SROP is spent on other aspects of graduate admissions preparation and professional development including presentations at a virtual conference.
