Stanford/CCNY Summer Research Program in the Humanities

The Division of Humanities and the Arts announces the opening of the application for the annual Stanford/CCNY Summer Research Program. This program is designed for CCNY students considering graduate school, and specifically doctoral research, in one of the humanities disciplines. As many as five City College Humanities and the Arts students will spend eight weeks on the beautiful campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Stanford will match each CCNY student with a Stanford faculty member who will mentor the student's research project. Students will participate in a weekly seminar on the graduate application process and research in the Humanities.

The students who are selected will receive up to $850 in air travel expenses, room and board on the Stanford campus, a bicycle to commute on campus, and a $4,000 stipend. They will also receive a Stanford ID and access to campus networks, libraries, and athletic facilities.

Eligibility: Students must have rising junior or rising senior standing and must be returning to CCNY as matriculated students in Fall 2024.
