Stanford Exposure to Research and Graduate Education (SERGE)

Main content start

In partnership with the Black Engineering Graduate Student Association (BEGSA), Stanford Engineering hosts select prospective graduate students for a fully funded, two-day campus visit. The visit includes introductions to faculty, students, research labs, and campus life, as well as workshops on application preparation.

SERGE gives prospective graduate students the opportunity to learn about finding and conducting research, as well as a better understanding of the day-to-day realities of doctoral student life. Through workshops and application prep, participants can take actionable steps toward pursuing an advanced degree.

Competitive rising juniors and seniors from public and private accredited colleges and universities who show great potential in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are encouraged to apply!

Program Details

  • Selected scholars will gain exposure to life as a graduate student at Stanford University through laboratory tours, as well as student and faculty engagements.
  • Academic workshops and panels during the visit will help prepare scholars to apply to Stanford University, other top-tier graduate programs, and fellowship programs.

Since 2022, SERGE has adopted a hybrid format. All associated materials and details will be sent to students participating virtually.

Program Dates: October 3-4, 2024 (Hybrid)
