Our Mission

Qualia Global Scholars was founded by Stanford students, researchers, instructors, and alums who have first-hand experience of how transformative the Stanford experience can be in opening the doors to incredible opportunities. Our mission is to change this by empowering the next generation of global leaders through near-peer mentorship, project-based learning, and interdisciplinary thinking.
