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 and 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. Applicants can propose their own placement or work with the Stanford Impact Labs and Haas Center team to develop an appropriate placement. The program offers financial support for one to four quarters.

Three faculty members were selected in 2020. We are currently reviewing applications for the 2021 Scholars in Service opportunity
