Application Process

Main content start

Application deadline is 11:59PM February 16, 2022. There is no application fee. The online application requires a few basic information questions, 4 short essays, your unofficial Stanford transcript. You will also be required to provide at least one Stanford faculty reference. You may also choose an additional reference that does not need to be a faculty member. If you submit the application but would like to make changes (prior to the deadline), please contact Ryan Petterson ( directly.

A note on references: It is a good idea to contact your references ahead of time and ask them if they are willing to recommend you. As soon as you submit your application, an email will be automatically sent to your reference with instructions. They will be asked to write a letter that addresses your academic strengths and weaknesses, ability to work in teams, enthusiasm, maturity, and ability to live in a small community for an extended period of time. The due date for them to submit the reference is 2/23/22.

How will my application be assessed?

We will assess applications based on many different aspects that contribute to success in the program. Primarily we are looking for students who are open to the experience and will benefit from participation. We also look for academic strengths, ability to work in teams, enthusiasm, maturity, and ability to live in a small community for an extended period of time.

What potential sources of conflict do you anticipate and how would you act to address those situations?
  4. This program is an intense experience—you can expect to be challenged physically, academically, and emotionally, sometimes all in the same day. Tell us about a time when you felt you were pushed to your limits, how you responded, and what you learned from the experience.
