At Stanford University, our commitment to graduate diversity includes a commitment to provide financial support in meaningful ways to help achieve a diverse student body, and to help our students succeed here.
Individual schools may also provide financial support for their students. Contact the Diversity Officer in your school to discuss possibilities.
