Stanford Summer College

Brilliant is nominating qualified Brilliant members ages 16-19 to attend Stanford’s Summer College for high school students. This 8-week program allows exceptional students to take Stanford college classes on the Stanford campus. We encourage students from every country to apply for the nomination!

How old do I have to be?

Your birthday must be on or after August 22, 1994, and on or before June 23, 1998.

What are the dates of Stanford Summer College?

June 21 - August 17 in Summer 2014.

Are there scholarships or financial aid available?

Yes. If you also would like to receive Brilliant's nomination for financial aid, you must follow the steps below for nomination by the early deadline of April 24, 2014.

What is the benefit of getting Brilliant's nomination?

Brilliant is collaborating with Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies, to help them vet talented students for their summer programs. If you receive Brilliant's recommendation, your application is guaranteed multiple reads by the admissions committee, which will give you a slightly better chance of being offered admission.

Agh, I'm born in Sep 1998 :( These extracurricular nominations seem more frequent in recent months; is Brilliant.org really becoming that popular among colleges and seen as a valuable student source? I'm happy and amazed overall for Brilliant, just too bad that circumstances don't permit me to attend. Also, how many students have been nominated in the past for these events?

It's really stupid on how they base it on age for the bulk of the qualifications. Considering Stanford, I would think they would at least make some compromises for kids that are above average though don't really make those age limits. :'( Asdf Asdf · 3 years ago
