Research Training Opportunities

The E-SPARE Program will provide research training opportunities in the United States and in other parts of the world.  Starting in January of each year, all LSAMP sophomores (prospective E-SPARE applicants) and juniors (rising E-SPARE seniors) will be encouraged to apply for acceptance into research internship programs such as the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROPs) and Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (SREU).  During the summer, all E-SPARE scholars will conduct research with renowned faculty at several institutions. Examples are:

  • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 
  • Clemson University
  • Duke University
  • East Carolina University
  • Emory University
  • Howard University
  • Loma Linda University (California)
  • University of Louisville
  • Meharry Medical College
  • The Ohio State University
  • Vanderbilt University
  • Virginia Commonwealth University
  • Wake Forest University
  • University of Zululand (South Africa)


It is a rare and a unique opportunity for students to conduct research while completing their coursework and engaging in academic activities to make them highly competitive for entry into Ph.D. programs.
