Opportunities for Undergraduates

Summer Research Opportunities Program

The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at Ohio State is designed to help historically underrepresented students explore opportunities for graduate study and academic careers. Over the course of eight weeks during the summer, Ohio State SROP participants will conduct research with a faculty mentor on a topic of mutual interest, and participate in activities crucial to preparation for graduate school, including workshops on research skills, seminars on topics related to graduate education, and professional development events. At the end of the summer program, participants present their research at a campus summary conference and a regional conference.

OARDC Research Internship Program (ORIP)

The summer OARDC Research Internship Program (ORIP) is targeted to provide research experiences for high school students and undergraduates. The goal of this exclusively faculty-driven program is to substantially expand research opportunities to area students and to significantly enhance their interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by inculcating critical thinking skills through rigorous laboratory and field-based research experiences, seminars, group discussions and symposia.

Graduate and Professional Student Recruitment Initiative (GPS)

For students considering graduate studies at The Ohio State University, the Graduate/Professional Students Recruitment Initiative (GPS) serves as the premier diversity recruitment program. GPS plays an integral role in contributing to the ethnic, cultural and academic diversity within Ohio State's Graduate School and Professional College programs.
