The Leadership Alliance National Symposium (LANS) is the culmination of the summer research experience for SR--EIP participants. Students make oral presentations or present posters about their summer research projects to a national audience of peers, faculty and representatives from the public and private sectors. Speakers, workshops and panel discussions foster a sense of community while providing practical information about graduate school and career opportunities.
The 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 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.
SR-EIP participants are engaged in scholarly research projects offered at 21 Leadership Alliance member institutions. These programs also offer research seminars and workshops in professional development, as well as social and cultural activities. The institutions set high standards and offer outstanding, closely mentored research experiences in a broad range of academic disciplines. Research opportunities and program requirements can be found on each participating institutions website.
