Since December 2019, there has been an emerging public health concern regarding an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus, 2019 Novel Coronavirus, which was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 3 Warningto avoid all nonessential travel to China. Additionally, the U.S. Department of State has elevated its travel advisory for China to Level 3: Reconsider Travel. Stanford is concurring with CDC recommendations that travelers avoid all non-critical travel to China.

In the event that we are not able to sponsor Global Studies internships in China this summer, students are advised to consider applying to positions outside of China. Students who have already applied to positions in China are now eligible to apply to other positions outside if China, even if they have already applied to two positions.

The safety and wellbeing of our students are our top priorities, and Stanford University is actively monitoring the developing situation with respect to the spread of disease and potential impacts to university functions.
