Qualia Global Scholars

Organized by Stanford University undergraduate and graduate students, Qualia Global Scholars is a selective pre-collegiate summer program that aims to empower high school and middle school students by advancing their leadership, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills through near-peer mentorship, project-based experiential learning, and interdisciplinary research. The program is led by Stanford students who have first-hand experiences of how transformative the Stanford experience can be in opening the doors to incredible opportunities. However, access to such opportunities is limited to a select few.
