Stanford Internship For High School Students

The Stanford Internship for High School Students is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for high school students to gain exposure to the work of a top university. The program offers students the chance to work alongside Stanford faculty and staff, who are engaged in research and scholarship in diverse fields.

Students will be matched with an academic mentor, who will advise them on their coursework and career plans. They will also attend seminars and workshops on topics related to careers in academia, as well as receive one-on-one advising sessions with other resources available at Stanford University.

As part of their participation in this program, students will have the opportunity to:

• Learn more about what it means to be an academic at Stanford University while working alongside faculty and staff members who are engaged in cutting-edge research and scholarship in diverse fields

• Gain exposure to current trends in higher education through visits from industry leaders and alumni speakers, who will share their experiences with both undergraduate and graduate programs at Stanford University

• Develop valuable skills that can help them succeed academically (e.g., learning how to write an effective research paper or preparing for a job interview).
