Stanford is a partner in the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). This program, 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 participating Alliance institutions.
Through one-on-one collaboration, students gain theoretical knowledge and practical training in academic research and scientific experimentation. Stanford interns also attend a weekly seminar on various aspects of the graduate school application process and success in graduate school. A GRE preparation course, taught by an experienced instructor, is also offered.
At the end of the summer program, students are required to make oral presentations or posters describing their research, prepare written reports and/or abstracts, and participate in the Leadership Alliance's annual national symposium. Applications are due at the beginning of February. Summer research participants must show evidence of US citizenship or permanent resident status.
