Stanford Professional Women of Los Angeles


Help Us Give a Stanford Student an Unforgettable Summer Work Experience!

Please give generously to our SPWLA Fellowship Fund. Each year, SPWLA funds one Stanford student who applies for the fellowship, enabling our fellow to spend the summer working in the non-profit world. We are pleased to be able to help talented undergrads explore their professional interests while they are still in school. These internships reap important dividends in many different ways – both in the lives of the interns and in the Los Angeles community. Read about our recent fellowship recipients below!

All members are invited to our Fellowship Brunch, and members who donate $50 or more receive SPWLA memorabilia. At our summer luncheon we meet our new fellowship recipient and learn how the internship is progressing. All contributions are appreciated. It takes $1,500 to fund just one fellowship, so we appreciate your generosity. To make a donation, please contact us at or Venmo us at

Accept The Challenge.

I support SPWLA’s commitment to fund fellowships for a deserving undergraduate Stanford student who wishes to devote their summer to community service.
