Stanford/CCNY Summer Research Program

The Division of Humanities & the Arts is now accepting applications for the Stanford-CCNY Summer Research Program in the Humanities, designed for students considering graduate school in one of the Humanities disciplines.

As many as five City College Humanities & the Arts students will spend eight weeks on the 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.

A free Graduate Record Exam (GRE) preparation course will be provided for those interested.

The students who are selected will receive up to $600 in travel expenses, room & board on the Stanford campus, a bicycle to commute on campus, and a $3,000 stipend.*

Only returning undergraduate students are eligible to apply. Other requirements include a 3.2 GPA and a letter of recommendation from a full-time City College faculty member.   For full details, please see

  • Excluded are students who hold fellowships that provide a guaranteed summer stipend (including the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship) as well as those who accept summer stipends from other sources (including the CCNY-Stanford Summer Exchange, Pipeline at the CUNY Graduate Center, and other such programs).
