Description

The Stanford Summer Humanities Institute brings together academically talented high school students grades 10 – 11 from around the world for a three-week residential program led by distinguished Stanford professors.

Students spend the first two weeks intensively studying and researching a topic in literature, history, or philosophy, attending daily lectures by the faculty members, and participating in group discussions and activities in the afternoon.

During their third week, students work closely with their professors, graduate students, and writing mentors to produce original research projects. These papers offer an opportunity for students to use what they have learned at Stanford to develop their answers to the central questions that are addressed by the humanities. Students will be introduced to research methods along with a library and online resources. And they’ll have something very impressive in the end to show for it.
