The Exceptional Research Opportunities Program (EXROP) links the resources of HHMI's Science and Science Education departments to provide bright, motivated undergraduate students from disadvantaged backgrounds (from an under-performing high school or low income family) and groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences (such as Hispanics, Blacks, and Native Americans) with outstanding summer research experiences. HHMI continues to work with EXROP students after their summer study programs to encourage them to pursue careers in academic science.
St. Olaf chemistry faculty members are currently looking for interested and eligible students for possible nomination for an EXROP position. Students should be current sophomores or juniors and fit the eligibility requirements highlighted above. Talk to any chemistry faculty member if you are interested.
