The Leadership Alliance Summer Research-Early Identification Program

The Leadership Alliance encourages students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities to pursue research careers in the academic, public and private sectors. The organization sponsors closely mentored research experiences in a broad range of academic disciplines at 22 research institutions.

The 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 participants make oral or poster presentations of their research at the Leadership Alliance National Symposium. Students receive a stipend, and travel and housing expenses are covered by the host institution
