Research Program - AGNR

The AGNR Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) is a partnership between the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) Dean’s Office, AGNR Academic Programs and The UMD Graduate School. The overarching goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented students pursuing graduate study and research careers in agricultural, environmental, nutrition and food science, and natural resource areas of study. 
SROP scholars will live on campus for eight weeks from June 1- July 26 and work with AGNR faculty members as part of their research teams. Students are expected to spend about forty hours per week working with their research teams and to be contributing members. Participants will attend weekly seminars to learn more about the graduate school experience, the graduate school application process as well as engaging in planned social activities in the evenings and weekends during their stay.  At the end of the eight weeks, students are expected to produce tangible results from experimental research and will report the results in a special research forum. Participants will also become acquainted with the culture of graduate education and learn what is needed and expected of them as graduate students in their respective disciplines.
