Announcing 2020 Scholars in Service Recipients and Second Call for Applications

We are delighted to announce the recipients of our 2020 Scholars in Service program. Teresa LaFromboise from the Graduate School of Education, Henry C. Lee from Pediatrics, and Latha Palaniappan from Stanford University Medical Center, who are building on existing partnerships with nonprofits in clinical and community settings to expand quality health care. Respectively, their work aims to expand suicide prevention programs at the Zuni Pueblo and Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico; reduce health disparities for mothers and newborns across California neonatal intensive care units; and leverage widely available technology to prevent chronic disease in India.

Our competitive Scholars in Service program, run by Stanford Impact Labs and the Haas Center for Public Service, supports faculty leave for up to one year to work with and learn alongside government and nonprofit organizations around an identified social problem. The program is intended to allow for an immersive experience for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas, generate new research insights and find practical, evidence-based ways to make progress on pressing social issues.

Please read our full announcement about the work of our 2020 recipients that was shared in Stanford News earlier this month.

 And we’ve just opened our next round of applications for 2021 Scholars in Service. Learn more and apply by January 11, 2021.
