Impact Design Immersion Fellowship

The Impact Design Immersion Fellowship supports Stanford GSB’s most promising MBA social innovators.

This competitive fellowship is designed to support MBA students to build insight into a societal problem, immerse with affected communities to understand the needs of target users, test hypotheses, and prototype ideas that prioritize impact.

IDIF is an 8-week program that provides educational sessions to inform each fellow’s entrepreneurial process as well as programming and peer support to bolster each fellow’s commitment to tackling the most urgent and consequential challenges facing society today.

After the summer fellowship, some IDIF participants may continue their work by starting new ventures, initiating partnerships with allied organizations, or pursuing other career pathways related to the problem.
