Many graduate students are part of the research team at SLAC. Students wishing to consider graduate study involving research in high energy physics or accelerator physics at SLAC should apply to the Stanford University Physics Department. University faculty members from other institutions who are part of any SLAC research program as User groups also bring graduate students to participate in their work at SLAC. Students from other universities with research groups working at SLAC also participate in research here. There are over 100 universities currently participating in SLAC research. Students cannot apply directly to SLAC. For more information, see the SLAC Graduate Student Program Information website.
