Mayfield Fellows Program

The Mayfield Fellows Program (MFP) is a 12 person work-study program run by Stanford Technology Ventures Program focusing on the intersection of technology, leadership and entrepreneurship. MFP starts with a spring quarter course, includes a paid summer internship, and finishes fall quarter with a capstone class. Spring quarter is spent teaching the mechanics of managing tech ventures including sessions with our wonderful Professors Tom Byers and Floodgate Venture Capital Firm Co-Founder & Partner Ann Miura-Ko and guest speakers who are leaders in the tech world and beyond. This is also when the job search begins — Mayfield Fellows are given an extremely unique opportunity to network directly with some of the biggest venture capital firms in Silicon Valley to choose a summer internship of their choice. During the summer, fellows pursue paid summer internships at innovative, early growth stage startups in the Bay Area. The final course in the fall allows each fellow to present a case study on their main learnings from the summer internship. Mentorship opportunities are abundant throughout the entire experience, and the program's 23-year-old alumni network which includes co-founder and CEO of Instagram Kevin Systrom and CEO of Gusto Josh Reeves among many others is incredible.

Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, and no prior knowledge of any of these topics is necessary.

Applications are due Friday, February 1st at 11:59 pm.

Information sessions will be held at STVP in Huang (Suite 004):
