SURF and the Value of Summer Research - Shared screen with speaker view
Are all faculty members at a university open to take Leadership Alliance Students?
how to show your interest in the personal statement?
Would fellows also be able to take classes during the program?
If we are unable to attend this program this summer due to prior commitment to another summer program, would we be able to apply for the 2020 summer session?
Greetings! Thanks for your presentations! Can you submit transcripts and apply fully before the end of this semester? I have seen that Fall 2018 grades are required so I am not sure if I am allowed to apply before the semester ends
Yes! Thank you for your presentations!
If we have pervious research experience, should we submit our research papers? If so, how?

Can you reasearch in an area that isn't your Major?
Thank you for the presentation and information! Is it more beneficial to apply earlier rather than later or closer to the due date?
is there a link that i can only aply of the summer internship on Yale?
What are some things that you are looking for in a student to be a competitive applicant?
I am graduating in January 2020 instead of May 2020, can I still apply though I am not technically a rising senior as of summer?
How many hours of research would a student do per week? Also what does a typical day look like in the program?
Two questions: I will be starting research during this coming spring semester but will have no prior research experience. Should I write about what I will be researching? How should I approach that?
how does the admission committee going to select their candidate upon?
Second: I’m a transfer student and my previous institution didn’t have my major so I have only had most of my professors here for only one semester. Can one of my professors that I had extensive interactions with from my previous institution write a letter of recommendation even if he is outside of my major or would it be better to ask one of my professors here?
i think you can
Can you describe what type of qualities in the letter of reccomendation are you looking for in a typical “strong” candidate for SR-EIP?
Would you all recommend our letters of recommendation to come from our current or prior professors and not on campus employers?
what should i demonstrate in my essay to get your attention and be acepted?
Follow up to this question: how about former employers not associated with a university? Former internship coordinators
Does our resume’ require a cover letter or does a statement of purpose take the place of that?
What are the major challenges people who participate in this program face?
What do you NOT want to see from a potential applicant? And how can you make yourself unique?
Can you request a letter from a graduate student with whom you have done research?
What do previous fellows think is their favorite part of the program?
Is living on campus a requirement if we are placed within proximity to home?
Karli, previous fellows love the friendships that develop over the summer!
Thank you Medeva! I would assume a lot of their time is spent with the cohort outside of working with their paired faculty and lab. This is great to hear!
The Yale website says that you accept an average of 15 students. What does the distribution of fields across those students look like?
Thank you all very much for your presentations and answers to these questions!
Thank you all!!
