The Leland Scholars Program (LSP) facilitates the transition to college for incoming Stanford frosh who may be the first in their families to attend college, attended under-resourced high schools, or are from low-income backgrounds. The program starts with a summer bridge experience in August, and continues with a first-year seminar, advising, and ongoing events throughout your time at Stanford.

LSP Cohort X
"LSP was a huge factor and point of support during this transition. Being exposed to college-level classwork and rigor was especially helpful coming from an under-resourced community and school that didn’t prepare me. I was able to cultivate a sense of community and belonging in this new place I now call home."
