Stanford Summer Programs

Quest Scholars Program
The Quest Scholars Program (Quest) is a five-year long leadership and science education program for talented, low-income youth.  Quest begins with a five-week summer residential program on the Stanford campus, and continues through the undergraduate college experience.  One student at a time, Quest strives to provide underprivileged students with the mentorship, personal direction, and educational skills to succeed at America's best universities.

The Quest Scholars Program currently encompasses two programs: QuestLeadership (the Quest summer residential session and the five continuing years of support described above) and QuestBridge, a new initiative of the Quest Scholars Program created to establish a portal to higher education for outstanding motivated, low-income, underrepresented and at-risk youth in America.  Information on the Quest Scholars Program and QuestLeadership can be found on this website.  For more information on QuestBridge, please visit

Education Program for Gifted Youth
The EPGY Summer Institutes are three-week and five-week residential summer programs on the Stanford University campus for academically talented and motivated high-school students.  The Summer Institutes provide an opportunity for these students to enrich and accelerate their academic pursuits and to share this experience with others who have similar interests and abilities.  Past participants have come from across the United States and around the world, and every student leaves with a sense of academic accomplishment, new friends, and fond memories of a wonderful time spent at Stanford University.  Students in the EPGY Summer Institutes live in supervised Stanford housing, and they are taught by Stanford instructors.  Courses in mathematics, science, writing, humanities, computer science, engineering, and music cover topics not typically presented in high school.
