Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP)


The Summer Research Opportunity Program provides University of Louisville undergraduate students with an intensive 10-week, 35 hour per week, research experience with a faculty member in any discipline. The program will run from May 30th to August 4th, 2023.

Students will receive a stipend of $3,500 for the 10 weeks, and faculty mentors will receive $500 to support the student's scholarly activities and supplies plus a poster printing allowance. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity will host weekly, required, professional development seminars each Wednesday at noon, via MS Teams. There will be a Research Showcase at the end of the summer for students to present posters on their accomplishments from the program.

Prior to applying the program, students should identify a faculty mentor who will provide the student with an individualized research project for the summer. 

Application requirements: Personal statement of interest, resume or CV, unofficial transcript, letter of recommendation from the mentor which includes a description of the SROP project. 

Deadline to submit applications is March 13th, 2023. Selections will be made by mid-April. Apply to the SROP program here.
