At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Paid Summer Research at Northwestern University in Evanston/Chicago

If you are looking for a productive and financially rewarding way to spend your summer, the Northwestern University Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) may be what you are looking for.

What is the SROP?
Throughout its 25-year history, the mission of the SROP has been to increase diversity among students pursuing graduate education and to provide a valuable academic research experience for students. The program is eight weeks in length, from June 20 through August 13, 2011, and includes faculty-supervised research, enrichment activities that prepare undergraduates for graduate school, a research conference and social activities.
Who can apply?
Current sophomores and juniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher are eligible to apply. Students from groups traditionally underrepresented in graduate schools (African-Americans, Hispanics, & Native-Americans) are encouraged to apply. Please note that students interested in pursuing an MBA, JD, or MD are not eligible for this program.

Each SROP participant will receive a stipend of $4000 and research supply funds of $500. Northwestern will also provide complimentary campus housing and a $450 campus meal subsidy, in addition to covering round trip travel expenses for all SROP participants who will be traveling to Northwestern from outside of the Evanston/Chicago area.

The application deadline is February 1, 2011.
