Our 14 Home Programs form a collaborative network that encourages creative thinking, interdisciplinary collaboration, and high-stakes, high-reward research. Students get the best of both worlds: the flexibility of a larger program with the direct mentorship fostered by a smaller setting.

At Stanford, we empower students to broaden their horizons, discover their passion, and become leaders and innovators in their career of choice.
