Limited financial aid is available for JSD students; currently we offer need-based aid for first year JSDs only. We encourage applicants to work as teaching and research assistants, and to apply for scholarships from foundations and government sponsors. Students have received funding from these sources as well as others:
- The Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education at Stanford works collaboratively with departments at Stanford to provide resources for graduate students. The Office of the Vice Provost administers the Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship Program and has other resources for graduate students.
- Fulbright Program – Nearly 5,000 Fulbright grants are awarded each year for foreign national students, teachers, professors and professionals to study, teach, lecture and conduct research in the United States and for U.S. nationals to do likewise outside of the United States. Please note: All applications must go through either your home country’s Commission or U.S. Embassy. IIE cannot accept applications under any circumstances.
