Leadership Alliance

With the goal of increasing the number of underrepresented minorities that pursue doctoral or M.D.-Ph.D. studies in the sciences and engineering, the Leadership Alliance connects undergraduate students to rigorous summer research experiences at member universities through its Summer Research – Early Identification Program. Students receive training and mentoring that prepare them for competitive applications to graduate school.

Each year, Tufts University hosts students from other undergraduate institutions across the country to conduct research in the labs of Tufts' faculty. Additionally, Tufts students can apply through Leadership Alliance to conduct research at other Leadership Alliance member institutions.
