The University of Iowa Graduate College CIC/Summer Research Opportunity Program

CIC/SROP at the University of Iowa provides research opportunities for undergraduate students with a demonstrated interest in pursuing Ph.D. degrees and academic/research careers. The program is designed to increase educational access for students from diverse backgrounds. Students from groups historically underrepresented in the humanities, arts, social sciences, engineering, and physical and natural sciences are encouraged to apply. Applicants from racial and ethnic minority groups and low-income, first-generation students are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference is given to students completing their junior year, although outstanding sophomores are considered for admission as well.
