Students

Our student members are undergraduate students committed to celebrating and demonstrating women’s leadership. They further the mission of Cap and Gown by brainstorming, planning, organizing, and running events that build community for women leaders and allies on the Stanford campus. As such, student members are the crux of Cap and Gown.


Undergraduates from all years of study are invited to become student members after attending a fall orientation event. All student members have the opportunity to apply for the Cap and Gown Leader Award, which honors demonstrated leadership, academic achievement, and commitment and contribution to Stanford and the community at large.

Upon graduation, student members have the opportunity to become alumni members, organizing events with the students, as well as serving as mentors.
