RISE Summer Internship Program

June 15 - July 31, 2020

NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION. Although the university has not made any broader decisions about its summer activities, SPCS has come to the difficult decision that we cannot host students on campus for programs this summer. We will continue to provide updates about summer programs and more information about Stanford's response to the developing situation here.

RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) is an intensive 7-week summer program for local Bay Area students who spend 30 hours a week on the Stanford campus, working in an active science or engineering research lab under the guidance of a mentor from the lab (typically a graduate student), and attending weekly group sessions that include field trips, presentations, hands-on science activities, and lab tours. All RISE interns earn a $2,500 stipend.

Unpaid Internships for High School Students

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 contact the Office of Science Outreach for advice or guidance.
