In-person and some virtual internship positions cover a wide range of fields, including business, nonprofit, media, education, medicine, arts, technology, engineering, science, law, human rights, and government. The program also supports students for self-arranged internships. 

Currently enrolled freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and co-terms at Stanford in all majors are eligible to apply, including undeclared students. Some positions in Asia are open to graduate students. 

The overall stipend base of $5,500 - $7,000 per student is provided by the host organization, the program, or both.
