Identifying project mentors

Fellows must be mentored by a Stanford faculty member – title of assistant professor, associate professor, or professor. (Adjunct faculty, lecturers, visiting scholars, academic staff, etc. are not members of the academic council and are not eligible sponsors). You will need to reach out to eligible mentors directly. 

While this is not required, it is highly recommended that you include a nomination letter from an eligible Stanford mentor in your application. If you are unable to do so, you can identify potential Stanford mentors within the application. If you are selected as a finalist, we will help connect you with a mentor prior to the zoom interview. 

If you have not already identified a mentor, we recommend you check out this Guide for Finding Potential Mentors. Additionally, here are some ways to find potential mentors:

  • Browse our Greenhouse Gas Removal researchers list of over 60 scholars at Stanford and find contact information through Stanford Profiles.
  • Identify researchers through specific Stanford department websites across the 7 different Schools at Stanford. Find details about individual faculty members via Stanford Profiles.
  • Note that you can do keyword searches through Stanford Profiles, and in each faculty member’s profile Publications tab, there is also a list of faculty doing related research and related research topic search links.
