SU-DD builds on some of the successes of our Ukrainian Emerging Leaders Program, which was housed at CDDRL beginning in 2017. Since then, CDDRL has hosted 12 Ukrainian fellows across 4 cohorts. SU-DD aspires to multiply this success and increase our impact in Ukraine in a number of ways:
The SU-DD Fellows program has five components:
Applicants to the SU-DD program will use the Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program (DHSF) application portal to apply. Applications are open now and are due by 5:00 pm PT on January 15, 2023. Click the links below to get started or learn more about the Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program.
If you are a Ukrainian interested in being considered for the SU-DD program, please indicate your interest on the online DHSF application. You will then be directed to a supplemental application for the SU-DD program. The supplemental application will ask some additional questions specific to the SU-DD program, including requiring a detailed description of your proposed project.
Stanford asks all applicants to be prepared to contribute towards the cost of their participation in the program if they are selected, though some need-based funding is also available.
Note: The Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program remains open to Ukrainian applicants who are interested in participating in ONLY the 3-week DHSF program, and not the SU-DD program as well. That is, SU-DD is not the only avenue by which a Ukrainian may apply or be included in DHSF.
