Stanford has been offering academic summer programs to students from around the world for over 20 years.

Twenty Years of Experience

Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes (formally known as the Stanford International Youth Program) was created to provide groups of international students the opportunity to experience American college life by travelling to Stanford and engaging in a variety of academic, social, and cultural activities.

Collaborators From Around the World

In past years, participating groups have hailed from Australia, Chile, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Singapore, the Navajo Nation, and Taiwan. In each case, participants have contributed to the cultural makeup of the cohort and helped make the program a resounding success.
