To apply, students will submit the STVP Fellows Programs application for Accel Leadership Program,Threshold Venture Fellows and Mayfield Fellows Program. They will indicate which program is their top choice. Students will be asked to provide a transcript, resume/CV, and thoughtful responses to prompt questions, such as sharing challenges they’ve overcome. Select applicants will be asked to attend a virtual interview in November, which will allow applicants the chance to share their unique backgrounds with the selection committee. Typically, interviews are conducted in groups.
Please email Eunice Lee with any questions about applying to the Accel Leadership Program.
