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.
