VPGE and Stanford's schools jointly sponsor two events for prospective students from diverse backgrounds to visit Stanford. These events showcase Stanford to students who will enhance the diversity of the graduate student population.
Stanford's network of Diversity Officers, representing the different schools within the university, can answer questions about these events, and about the graduate programs within their schools.
Faculty members may request up to $500 to defray the cost of bringing prospective graduate students for campus visits. Applicants may include students of an ethnicity that is underrepresented in an academic field; women who are underrepresented in a field; or people who would be the first members of their family to attend graduate school. Contact Rebecca Jantzen in VPGE.
Graduate Diversity Day is a preview day for selected admitted students and promising applicants from the schools of Humanities & Sciences, Engineering, Education and Earth Sciences to visit campus and decide if Stanford is right for them.
