2022 Summer Research Opportunities Program is Seeking Faculty Mentors

Host an undergraduate student in your lab this summer by participating in this year's CAS-SROP!

SROP students practicing team leadership

The Insect Biodiversity Center and Department of Entomology are partnering with the Penn State Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) in the College of Agricultural Sciences to support undergraduate interns in STEM-focused research projects this summer.  We are specifically recruiting undergraduate students through our collaborating faculty at three minority serving institutions:  Central State University, Chowan State University, and University of Maryland Eastern Shore.  

For those of you unfamiliar with SROP, it is an eight-week research program designed to encourage talented undergraduate students to pursue academic careers, and to enhance their preparation for graduate study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors. In addition to gaining research experience, the SROP program includes professional development workshops, seminars, field trips, and social activities.  Students selected for this competitive internship program are typically high-achieving and from underrepresented groups. 

If you are interested in hosting a student this summer, please send an email to Natalie Boyle (Natalie.Boyle@psu.edu).
