After two years of planning, the inaugural Stanford Gap For Good program started in Summer 2012. SGFG Summer 2012 Program was supported by the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED) in the Stanford Graduate School of Business. There were 8 students working on 4 Sustainable Development projects. Of these students, 3 traveled to Cambodia and Thailand for their projects in mid-August.

Following the success of the inaugural program in Summer 2012, SGFG Program is expanded to Spring Quarter and Summer of 2013. There are 26 students working on 9 projects during Spring Quarter. Of these, 16 will travel to the field over the Summer.
