Summer Research - Early Identification Program (SR-EIP)
Since 1992, the Leadership Alliance has encouraged students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities to pursue research careers in the academic, public and private sectors.
SR-EIP provides undergraduates with training and mentoring in the principles underlying the conduct of research and prepares them to pursue competitive applications to graduate schools.
SR-EIP is a gateway to ongoing resources, mentoring and professional networks to support all participants along their chosen career path.
SR-EIP is a rigorous research experience designed specifically for undergraduates interested in applying to PhD or MD-PhD programs.
Students work for eight to ten weeks in the summer under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at a participating Leadership Alliance institution. Through one-on-one collaborations, students gain theoretical knowledge and practical training in academic research and scientific experimentation. All SR-EIP participants make oral or poster presentations of their research at the Leadership Alliance National Symposium.
SR-EIP students receive a stipend, and travel and housing expenses are covered by the host institution.
