Stanford Data Science Undergraduate Research Pathways (DSURP)

The Stanford Data Science Undergraduate Research Pathways program is an 8-week full-time research experience designed to provide students at institutions without access to research opportunities the chance to conduct a research project under the supervision of both a mentor and faculty member. This is an in-person experience held at Stanford from June 24 to August 16, 2024.


  • The program is held during the Stanford summer quarter from June 24–August 16 (8 weeks).
  • Participants will receive a stipend of $6000, but the program is not otherwise able to provide housing support.
  • Available slots are limited and selection is competitive. Priority is given first to students from non-R1 universities, and also to those from backgrounds underrepresented in data science research.
  • The program is not open to Stanford students.

How to Apply

Applicants will need to provide the following by 11:59 pm PST on March 3, 2024:

  • Personal and demographic information.
  • Resume and unofficial transcript.
  • Demonstration of data science reasoning ability.

Applications will open in the next academic year (2024-2025)*

Any questions should be directed by email to Daniel LeJeune.

*The Stanford Data Science Undergraduate Pathways (DSURP) program recognizes that the Supreme Court issued a ruling in June 2023 about the consideration of certain types of demographic information as part of an admission review. All applications submitted during upcoming application cycles will be reviewed in conformance with that decision.
