How to Apply

All Big Ten Academic Alliance institutions share the same SROP online application, allowing you to apply to multiple programs with only one submission of your materials. To apply for an SROP program at the University of Maryland, please submit your application through the SROP Online Application, and be sure to choose University of Maryland during that application process.  The SROP Online Application is open from November 1, 2017 through February 10, 2018.

If you are applying to the BSOS SRI program, UMD requires a supplemental application.


After completing the SROP online application, BSOS SRI applicants are required to submit a supplemental application which will ask for a current curriculum vita (C.V.) or résumé and a 500-1500 word personal statement.  Please review the application advice and Instructions and then proceed to the Application Portal.
