The Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF) participates in the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) Research Experience for Undergraduates each summer which provides approximately 60 undergraduate students with ten-week internships working on mentored research projects at NNIN facilities. SNF hosts approximately 7 students.
Application Deadlines: 2/13/13 online application; 2/20/13 online teacher recommendation; 2/21/13 final online application all forms complete.
Stanford is a partner in the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). This program, principally for underserved and underrepresented students, offers undergraduates the opportunity to work for eight to ten weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at participating Alliance institutions.
SURGE provides undergraduate scholars (from Stanford and other U.S. institutions) with a mentored research experience in a Stanford research group or laboratory. This fully funded, eight-week, summer residential program combines a rigorous research assignment with a comprehensive training and mentoring program. SURGE focuses on preparing students for graduate school, and therefore targets rising undergraduate juniors and seniors.
The Stanford School of Medicine's Summer HCOP is an academically rigorous six-week residential program that encourages and provides an academic learning environment for 25 talented college sophomores and juniors who expect to graduate after the summer of 2013, who seek a career in medicine and have experienced educational or academic barriers within the San Francisco Bay Area region.
Stanford Summer Session offers visiting high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and adults a full range of 8 - 10 week classes during the summer in the Humanities, Sciences, Math, Engineering and Athletics. Tuition is charged and credit earned by students may be eligible for transfer to another college or university.
For the first time in its history, Stanford is offering some of its most popular engineering classes free of charge to students and educators around the world. Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) expands the Stanford experience to students and educators online. A computer and an Internet connection are all you need. View lecture videos, access reading lists and other course handouts, take quizzes and tests, and communicate with other SEE students, all at your convenience. Visit the program website to access the classes.
The Cardiothoracic Surgical Skills and Education Center Stanford Summer Internship is designed to educate high school and pre-medical students considering careers in science, medicine, and public health in basic and advanced cardiovascular anatomy and physiology as well as medical and surgical techniques that will be utilized in pre-medical and medical school.
This program is open to all students worldwide. There is a fee to apply and a $5,800 fee to participate.
Due to overwhelming demand, this program has added a second session to accommodate additional students. Please note that the curriculum for Program 1 and Program 2 are identical, and the application deadline is the same for both programs. Program 2 dates are July 15-August 9, 2013.
This three-week course (half days) is for students considering careers in a variety of procedure-based medical fields, such as surgery, dental surgery, and nursing. It may also be of interest to students who intend to study biomedical engineering, occupational or physical therapy, sports medicine, or to become EMTs/paramedics.
The course includes daily classroom and laboratory sessions led by Stanford instructors, as well as student-led case presentations, guided dissections, and surgical simulations with human cadavers.
