The Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP) funds summer internships for rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who plan to pursue a Ph.D. in the biomedical and physical sciences, engineering, social sciences, or humanities. Sponsored by the Leadership Alliance, a consortium of 31 institutions of higher education, SR-EIP allows students to work for eight to ten weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at a participating Alliance institution. Previous research experience is preferred but not required.
SR-EIP encourages students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities to consider research careers in the academic, public, or private sectors. Award recipients present a written report and/or abstract at the end of their summer research activity and present their research at the Leadership Alliance’s annual national symposium.
Applicants must be in good academic standing with a GPA of 3.0 or better and have:
- Completed at least two semesters and have at least one semester remaining of their undergraduate education by the start of the summer program
- Demonstrated interest and potential to pursue graduate study
- Documented US citizenship or permanent resident status.
