Scholars in Service

The Scholars in Service program (formerly called "Leaves-in-Service") is part of the pilot phase of the Stanford Impact Labs initiative, in partnership with the Haas Center for Public Service. The program is intended to complement and extend existing opportunities at Stanford to take leave to work with public and nonprofit organizations, allowing for the exchange of learning and expertise around an identified social problem. Recipients receive financial and logistical support.

Three faculty members were selected in our inaugural year, with leave placements in 2020-2021. The next cohort of recipients will soon be announced.
