Scholars in Service

The Scholars in Service program supports faculty to work for up to a year within government and nonprofit organizations on a particular social problem. The program, run jointly by Stanford Impact Labs and the Haas Center for Public Service, provides financial and professional support so faculty can exchange ideas and learn with practitioners to generate new research insights and practical applications on topics like health equity, education policy, and programs designed to increase people’s economic opportunity.  

Previous Scholars in Service have worked in federal and state government agencies and with local community organizations including: the White House Council of Economic Advisers, the Department of Defense, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s office, the Louisiana Department of Public Health, the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative, Arogya World, the RMP Foundation, and Cultiva la Salud and the Dolores Huerta Foundation in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
