Graduate education is central to Stanford’s mission of training future leaders and problem solvers. Funding graduate students is also one of the fastest ways to advance scientific discovery, which most often emerges from the interactions of the students and their faculty advisors.
The Sustainability Matching Program will match the following gifts of endowment to support graduate students. Endowed fellowships exist in perpetuity and may be established in the donors’ own names or in the names of others whom they wish to honor.
Named, Endowed Graduate Fellowships ($1.5 million)
These fellowships are the vital mechanism by which Stanford can attract the most talented students to Stanford and support them once they are here.
A gift of $1.5 million will receive a $500,000 match to create a $2 million endowment that supports at least one graduate student each year.
See how fellowship support has helped launch the high impact sustainability careers of these students and alumni.
