For students in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities to pursue research careers in the academic, public and private sectors.
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.
Students receive a stipend, and travel and housing expenses are covered by the host institution.
