The Stanford Data Science Initiative program provides an opportunity for member companies to send a researcher to Stanford University as a visiting scholar to study and engage in research under the direction of a Stanford faculty member. Visiting Scholars appointments are usually made for up to one year, although shorter appointments are possible. The program is intended to build relationships for collaboration through an exchange of ideas. Stanford policy on Visiting Scholars can be found at this link.
