Please find the details about the newly launched Canada Summer Research Opportunities Programme (Canada SROP) at the University of Toronto, designed after a successful diversity initiative from the US (https://www.btaa.org/resources-for/students/srop/introduction). A pilot program will be run remotely at the University of Toronto from June 7 - July 30, 2021.


The SROP is an immersive, 8-week professional development programme that is designed to support undergraduates who identify as Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Colour (BIPOC) and want to apply to graduate school in Psychology, Management, or Neuroscience. About half the time of the SROP will be spent on a research project under the mentorship of a UofT faculty member from Psychology, Management, or Neuroscience, and the other half of the time will be spent engaging in professional development course focused on preparation of graduate school applications. Students will receive a stipend for the 8-week period that is based on a living wage (https://canadasrop.ca/students/).
The application deadline is February 15, 2021.
