Partnership with Columbia Alliance Research Internship Program

Columbia Alliance, École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

Created in 2002, the Alliance Program is an innovative joint-venture between Columbia University, the École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University. Every year, Columbia University offers a number of student internships in scientific disciplines, which are open to École Polytechnique students (Alliance Research Internship Program).

In 2022, the IICD partnered with the program to host interns from the École Polytechnique. Several of our labs have hosted Alliance interns (see alumni below).
