Undergraduate Students

Main content start

We welcome all undergraduate students (from Stanford as well as neighboring universities) interested in pursuing graduate school, or who just want to learn more about what it means to do research, to attend our events!

All of our events are free to undergraduate students, thanks to generous funding support from the Office of Student Engagement (ASSU), the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education, the Haas Center for Public Service, and Stanford Engineering departments.
