King Center Summer Undergraduate Full-Time Research Assistant Program

Quarter-long full-time

The Summer Undergraduate Full-time Research Assistant Program offers opportunities for fieldwork and research experience to Stanford undergraduates interested in global poverty and development across disciplines.

When Stanford University travel policies allow, selected students spend up to 12 weeks in a low- or middle-income country conducting full-time research for a King Center Faculty Affiliate. Each research assistant receives a stipend that covers most associated costs including travel, lodging, financial aid and incidental expenses.

Students are welcome to apply to multiple opportunities but must apply to each faculty research project separately. This program is only open to matriculated Stanford undergraduates. Coterm students who are interested in the program will need to hold undergraduate standing to be eligible.

Please see the King Center website for more information.


  • This program is open only to current Stanford undergraduates. 
  • Students are eligible for only one full-time opportunity during the entire academic year.

Students are welcome to apply to multiple opportunities, but must apply to each field research project separately via the Stanford Off-Campus Learning Opportunities (SOLO) website.
