For complete eligibility requirements, please review our program policies in its entirety.

  • Students must have completed two full-time enrolled quarters this academic year by the time their opportunity begins.
  • Students can only participate by taking a Flex Term during their fellowship experience.

Undergraduates from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply, and applicants may vary in academic interests, public service involvement, and experience. Priority will be given to students who have completed fewer than two previous Cardinal Quarter opportunities. Graduating seniors will have lower priority. Students who have begun their coterm programs are not eligible to apply.

Note: Students are only eligible for one Stanford-funded full-time experiential learning opportunity during the 2020-21 academic year (inclusive of summer).
