Early Identification Program

On this page, you will find a list of online sources of research opportunities. However, we aim to do more than simply pass information on to our students. At EIP we are committed to helping students become successful candidates. We encourage students to work closely with our advisors in targeting research and funding opportunities. Additionally, EIP advisors will work closely with applicants by (1) reviewing and critiquing proposals and personal statements, (2) sharpening applicants' writing skills, and (3) providing tips on the interview process. We want you to succeed, and we are here to provide guidance and encouragement.

Recently added opportunities are listed in bold. Please consult the individual websites for accurate deadline information.
