While readers work remotely, we prioritize local readers (within driving distance of Stanford) to facilitate training and calibration activities -- e.g., meetings with the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, ongoing exposure to the program and university officials, etc.
Qualifications Experience with college admission undergraduate or graduate populations is a plus. A bachelor's degree is required; a graduate degree is a plus. Absolute dependability, with ability to meet deadlines and self-manage. Commitment to sustain high-quality, highly cognitive, and emotionally involved work. Excellent critical thinking and independent judgment; strong reading, writing, and analytical skills; superb attention to detail; flexibility and adaptability; discretion with highly confidential information. Ability to balance empathy for applicants and their diverse lived experiences with rigorous and unbiased adherence to established evaluation criteria. Knowledge of Stanford University and/or graduate school(s). Comfort with technology and problem-solving basic issues. Given the learning curve, the ideal candidate will commit for several admission cycles.
Please do not apply if: There is or may be even the appearance of a conflict of interest with you serving as a reader -- e.g., you are a parent, guardian or relative of a current or future applicant; you are an admission professional, including a guidance counselor or independent consultant; or you know of any other condition that may pose a conflict of interest.
Timeline Training will take place on September 20-22, 2021. You will need to spend a few hours reviewing preparatory materials in the weeks prior to training. The reading season should last through mid-December with no expectation to read over the Thanksgiving break or winter holidays.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
