Subject: 2006 Summer Research Opportunities Program in Psychology
We are writing to let you and your students know about the Summer
Research Opportunities Program in Psychology at the University of Utah.
SROP, begun in 1992, is aimed at enhancing the research careers of
underrepresented students in psychology and to increase the number of
underrepresented students who enter Ph.D. programs in psychology,
helping to diversify the field and broaden the range of perspectives.
Program objectives are to provide students with the preparation to
become research scholars, stimulate serious consideration of Ph.D.
study, prepare students for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and
pursue careers in university teaching and research.
This year's SROP will commence on June 3 and continue until August 4,
2006. We accept 8 undergraduate and 4 pre-masters level graduate
students into SROP. Travel, stipend (approximately $2,500 for
undergraduates & $3,000 for graduate students), room & board, tuition
and Kaplan GRE preparation expenses are paid for all students selected
into the program. SROP is funded by the University of Utah and the
National Institute of Mental Health. During the summer semester,
students conduct original research with a faculty mentor, attend a
weekly seminar on preparation for a research career in psychology and
related fields, attend a GRE preparation course, and other social
events. Students present their research in oral and poster sessions at
the University of Utah, which some students and mentors have later
presented at regional and national conferences (conference presentations
are partially funded by SROP).
Please take a look at and direct interested people to our website
(www.psych.utah.edu/srop) for more up-to-date information, including a
brochure and downloadable application. We must receive the completed
application by March 3, 2006. Please contact one of us if you have
further questions or if you would like to receive some brochures.
