The Stanford School of Engineering specifically works towards promoting and inspiring innovative approaches to fairness in higher education by removing barriers to full participation. One of the great strengths of any educational system lies in having a student body that is both highly qualified and diverse; a student's personal background and identity is as relevant as technical knowledge.
The Stanford CS Logic Institute is offering scholarships to STEM students from traditionally underrepresented communities. All students applying to this camp will automatically be considered for a scholarship.
Summer Camp is held July 10th to 21st, and enrollment is limited.  Registration is due June 15th so act fast!
