Journeys From Scholarship to Leadership 2018 ANNUAL REPORT

A word from our partners...

"NYU’s partnership with the Leadership Alliance has diversified academia and the professional workplace by serving as the launching pad for the research journeys of diverse students. More than half of NYU’s SR-EIP alumni have gone on to earn advanced degrees in PhD, MD, MD-PhD, DDS, and PharmD programs at universities across the country."
"The Leadership Alliance, with its mission of advocacy, mentoring, and capacity-building at Minority-Serving Institutions, has helped make our students’ research journeys a reality through internship opportunities, mentoring, and networking."

We are diversifying the research workforce and preparing the next generation of leaders.

Our Doctoral Scholars are past SR-EIP participants who continued their journeys through PhD and MD-PhD programs.

We've been creating new academic pathways for twenty-five years.

In 1993, 93 undergraduates took their first steps on their journey from scholarship to leadership through the Leadership Alliance’s flagship program, the Summer Research-Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). Twenty-five years later, SR-EIP is providing research opportunities in all academic disciplines at more than 20 research institutions across the country for more than 300 undergraduates annually. To date, more than 500 SR-EIP alumni have completed a PhD or MD-PhD.

We continue building our road map for success.

Our vision for the future is to continue to serve as the destination for students seeking undergraduate research training and create greater opportunities for Leadership Alliance alumni to share their knowledge and skills with the larger community.

Our programs are guiding journeys from scholarship to leadership.

We prepare young scholars for research with Academic Year Workshops (AYW).

70% of participants who attended What is Research? report that the workshop helped to clarify the benefits of research opportunities

98% of participants in Collaborative Learning left the workshop with the skills they needed to start study groups.

57% of attendees took the next step in their journeys by participating in a research experience the following summer.

We cultivate journeys of research and mentorship through the Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP).

We ignite new research journeys through the First Year Research Experience (FYRE) program.

We shape journeys in the humanities & social sciences through the Leadership Alliance Mellon Initiative (LAMI).

We continue to build communities that support journeys at the Leadership Alliance National Symposium (LANS).

59% reported that LANS is their first national research conference.
59% reported presenting their research at another national conference after LANS.
42 Doctoral Scholars attended the reunion at the LANS Research Conference

We connect academic and career journeys at the Career Development Workshop (CDW).

89% of participants have a clear understanding of the path to becoming successful in their desired career
89% of participants have the skills to navigate the job market

We help faculty build skills to sustain academic careers through Grant Writing Coaching Groups.

"Through the guidance provided by the faculty grant coaching group I was able to guide my grant from early draft stages to a highly competitive proposal. Outside of the explicit coaching our group built a genuine camaraderie, fostering strong personal and professional connections that significantly enhanced my network."

We acknowledge and thank our funders, faculty mentors, institutional leaders, and program administrators. They support the Alliance’s mission of transforming the workforce by preparing scholars from diverse backgrounds to assume leadership roles in academia and the public and private sectors. Together, we work to further academic and career journeys from scholarship to leadership.
