Programs in Electrical Engineering
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.
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.
SLAC offers 20-25 undergraduates an 8-9 week paid internship at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in Menlo Park, California.SULI interns receive a stipend, travel expenses and free housing on Stanford campus.
Stanford's OSA/SPIE student chapter is active in outreach to K-12 students and teachers. We offer hands-on demonstrations and exhibits at school science fairs and large science festivals, as well as classroom-style presentations. We spark students' interests in science by teaching about light. There is no charge for our outreach activities.
SURF is designed for undergraduates from Stanford and other U.S. institutions. SURF interns receive a stipend for 10 weeks during the summer to live on campus and work with a faculty mentor in the School of Engineering and other students to produce an identifiable research result.
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.
