The following are Haas Center-sponsored or co-sponsored Cardinal Quarter opportunities. To explore the full range of University-sponsored Cardinal Quarter opportunities, please visit this page.

The Haas Center offers opportunities that are prearranged (an internship at a community partner identified by the Stanford sponsoring unit) or self-designed (an unpaid public service internship identified by the applicant). The placement types are indicated below and on this flyer. Take a look at our Finding a Community Partner tipsheet if you are interested in identifying a host organization for a self-designed experience.
