The Leadership Alliance offers a summer research experience for undergraduates known as the Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP) which provides undergraduates with training and mentoring in the principles underlying the conduct of research and prepares them to pursue competitive applications to graduate schools. The SR-EIP is a gateway to ongoing resources, mentoring and professional networks to support all participants along their chosen career path.
For more information on the program itself, click here. 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.
