Leland Scholars Program

LSP taught me the importance of accepting that I do belong at Stanford and should be proud of my FLI background. I was able to find a loving community who shared many of my struggles and fears coming into Stanford. LSP empowered me and gave me access to resources I would have struggle to find.
