Pathways to Science-- graduate and undergraduate opportunities

The Leadership Alliance

The Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP), principally for underserved and underrepresented students, offers undergraduates the opportunity to work for eight to ten weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at a participating Alliance institution. Through this one-on-one collaboration, students gain theoretical knowledge and practical training in academic research and scientific experimentation. SR-EIP is designed to encourage students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities to consider research careers in the academic, public or private sectors. Students are required to present a written report and/or abstract at the end of their summer research activity and complete a program evaluation. All participants are expected to participate in the Leadership Alliance’s annual, national symposium and to make oral or poster presentations of their research. Students receive a stipend, travel and housing. [Many of these Alliance schools are Ivy League institutions.]
