Interested in gaining research experience?

This summer, the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) will host undergraduate students from NIU to complete research at NIU and the surrounding community.

SROP is an eight-week program for sophomores, juniors, and some seniors to conduct paid, faculty-mentored, research over the summer weeks. The program gives participants the chance to develop personally, academically and professionally through a variety of workshops, field trips, and activities.
