In addition to formal internship programs for high school students, Stanford labs sometimes host high school interns on an informal basis, usually in unpaid internships. The Office of Science Outreach is not able to help individual students identify a host lab or project but if you click on the red title above, you will find some information and tips. Please do not call the Office of Science Outreach for advice or guidance.
Programs in Social Sciences
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.
The SMYSP Summer Residential Program offers five weeks of intensive science and health training each summer for low income and under-represented high school students from northern and central California. Participants live together at Stanford, attend scientific lectures, complete anatomy laboratory practicums, intern at Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System hospital, and learn about college entrance requirements, application procedures and financial aid. The program is tuition-free; selection is based on an application process.
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.
