Program Info and Application

The DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship offers a targeted six-month experience for Stanford Engineering master’s and co-term students interested in leading entrepreneurial ventures in their careers. While building on elements of our other successful programs for students, STVP created the Fellowship to serve the specific needs of master’s students, who often have previous career experiences, and who have a limited amount of time to pursue entrepreneurship activity while studying at Stanford.
Using a dynamic blend of workshops, courses, mentorship, and field experiences, the Fellowship aims to provide the optimal amount of structured experiences, while leaving room for the individual student to explore topics of interest most vital to their own career interests and trajectory. Enrollment is limited to 12 Stanford Engineering master’s students. The application period is open during September and October.

Please email Nikkie Salgado with any questions about applying to the DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship.

Applications will be accepted in October 2018.
