Undergraduate Internships

Connect with affiliated faculty, get valuable research experience and get paid over the summer. A number of programs at Stanford offer undergraduate students ways to get involved in research and build expertise in disase ecology, health and environmental sciences at Stanford. Apply early because some opportunities have class and prerequisite requirements.

In some cases, opportunities for summer internships are posted by faculty (such as VPUE, MUIR, SESUR, and many others), In other cases, students have to submit a research proposal (see UAR student grants). We recommend to carefully check deadlines, contact core faculty ahead of time and be pro-active and creative: if there is a match between the interests of an applicant and a lab, there is a good possibility to find a grant opportunity for a research internship through Stanford.


Our events often have a need for student volunteers to help coordinate them, set up/break down, take notes, or help us communicate about the event. Those events on our calendar with volunteer opportunities are marked with a 'v'.

Upcoming Events

There are many relevant courses at Stanford -- so many that it is hard to navigate them all. We can help.
