We are happy to announce that the application period for Stanford’s Summer Session International Honors Program (IHP) has started!

International Honors Program (IHP) is a collaboration between Stanford University and leading teaching and research institutions from Asia, Europe, and Central America. Selected students from participating universities are welcomed to Stanford’s eight-week Summer Session where they engage in a challenging course of study augmented by extracurricular activities designed expressly for accomplished international students.


In this program, students may choose from approximately 170+ courses in 40+ departments and earn a Stanford transcript at the end. For more information about the program and for the full listing of courses please visit:


Selection Criteria:

* IMPORTANT: The grades are transferred to KU as letter grades, as opposed to just credits, which in return affects your GPA directly.
