Lilly Scholars Program
The Lilly Scholars Program
was a joint initiative of the Alliance and the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation (Lilly) from 2007 to 2012. Designed specifically for students who demonstrated their aptitude for research by their successful completion of at least one prior SR-EIP summer experience, the initiative provided these talented students access to high-quality summer research internships at one of 22 research sites within the Alliance network.
Ten Lilly internship positions were awarded in 2012. The Leadership Alliance Lilly Guidance Committee nominated the 2012 Lilly Scholars from within the group of SR-EIP students, once all summer research participants had been selected.
Lilly interns received a stipend, as well as paid housing and travel. During the summer, Lilly Scholars had opportunities to interact and met at the Leadership Alliance National Symposium to discuss their experiences and career choices.
