The Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY) at Stanford is hiring undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students to work during summer 2008 as counselors and teaching assistants for the EPGY Summer Institutes, a residential academic youth program. This is an exciting opportunity to earn money while having a meaningful, productive, and enjoyable summer. It is also a chance to gain teaching and tutoring experience in preparation for graduate teaching assistantships or work in education professions.

The EPGY Summer Institutes consist of two three-week sessions for high-school students and three two-week sessions for middle-school students. For 2008, we will also offer programs (at the high school level) in Beijing, Singapore, and Istanbul. Participants in past years have come from 44 countries and 49 states. The program has consistently received excellent reviews, and students leave with a sense of academic accomplishment, new friends, and fond memories of a wonderful time spent at Stanford University. Working for EPGY is a rewarding opportunity for those who enjoy inspiring growth and fostering learning in highly talented and motivated youth.

Residential Counselors/Teaching Assistants (RCs) comprise EPGY's main staff. RCs are selected for their ability to work with young people in a residential setting, and for their academic qualifications, as this position includes an instructional role assisting students in their course work. This arrangement allows for the social and academic portions of the program to be tightly integrated.

All positions provide excellent weekly pay and include on-campus housing and dining. Options exist for students who prefer part-time work.

Applicants who are interested in working for one of our international programs should indicate this on the online application. Please note that the application will ask you to rank your preferences for both the international and Stanford-based programs. You may indicate equal preference for both, but those applicants selected for a position will receive an offer for either an international or a Stanford-based program, depending on your interests and qualifications as well as our program needs.

Out-of-state applicants should be advised that EPGY requires an in-person interview and that we are unable to pay for any travel expenses.
