Qualia Global Scholars Summer Program

Qualia Global Scholars is a selective, four-week, online academic enrichment summer program organized by Stanford undergraduate and graduate students for talented pre-college students with diverse interests and backgrounds from around the world.

The program has separate tracks for high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 6-8) students. Students are admitted through a competitive application process and placed into cohorts based on their experience and interests.

Based on our learnings from prestigious institutions such as Stanford, Harvard, MIT, and Yale, this program is designed to inspire and empower pre-collegiate students by connecting them with world-class mentors from Stanford who have a strong track record of succeeding at top institutions and working on some of the most pressing problems of our world.
