The Stanford Summer Engineering Academy (SSEA) is a fully-funded, four-week summer program that welcomes a cohort of incoming first-year students from across the country and worldwide to campus every August for a dynamic, fully integrated academic and residential experience.
We seek to illuminate the brilliance of students from underrepresented backgrounds in engineering such as wxmen, first generation and/or low income, first in their family to study/pursue an engineering degree, or environments with limited exposure to engineering curriculum while providing a diverse network of support systems, and eliminating barriers to educational access.
Our program offers the opportunity for students to have an immersive experience on campus before the start of the school year by participating in computer science and math classes, lab projects, and resource fairs.
SSEA students gain preparation for studies in engineering, discuss transitioning to college, explore campus and the Bay Area, bond with fellow cohort members, and start to find their unique place at Stanford.
"I think that the RA’s are what make SSEA such a great and unique program. We have people who really do care about us and are willing to open up to us."
We are currently hiring two graduate Resident Fellows (RF) for SSEA 2020. Learn more about the role and apply here.
RF applications are due on November 13, 2019 at 11:59pm pst.
Resident Assistant (RA) applications will be available during winter quarter.
SSEA 2020 will take place from Sunday, August 2 to Friday, August 28. The application for SSEA is available to incoming first-year students after they have accepted their Stanford offer of admission. A SUNet ID is required in order to submit an application.
