Chinese Undergraduate Visiting Research Program Structure

Each year, 12-18 undergraduates (juniors) from select Chinese universities, including Tsinghua, PKU, USTC, and NTU, come to the Stanford School of Engineering to work with faculty on research for about 10 weeks, alongside Stanford engineering students.  These Chinese UGVR students are integrated into the SOE summer REU program.

In the Fall, interested Stanford SOE faculty are invited to submit position descriptions with information about the summer research to be done by the Chinese UGVR student and required skills and background. These position descriptions are provided to the Chinese universities who then facilitate a competitive application process, including English interviews, and pre-select a handful of students for each position.  The applications of these students are then forwarded to the Stanford faculty member for a final decision.  Unless otherwise requested, each Stanford faculty member is provided with applications from students at multiple Chinese universities. Each faculty member cn only host one UGVR student. 

The China Programs staff coordinates this process and, once the students are selected, organizes their admission to Stanford, visas, housing, travel, and other logistics.

Interested students of partner universitis can apply this program only through their schools.
