Fellowships are available to all U.S. and international MBA financial aid applicants who can demonstrate financial need. The Stanford GSB Financial Aid office does not offer merit-based fellowships.
For fellowship purposes, we define “need” as our school budget minus assets, income, contributions from parents, friends and/or employers, and outside fellowships/scholarships.
The Financial Aid office will perform a point-in-time analysis of all assets, both liquid and non-liquid, when determining your fellowship eligibility. We do not consider loans (except forgivable loans) when determining fellowship need. A minimum loan will be packaged prior to determining Stanford GSB fellowship eligibility.
It’s important to understand that we do not negotiate fellowship amounts or eligibility.
Stanford GSB is fortunate to receive generous fiscal support from countless individuals, foundations, and corporations for fellowship funds. Although no separate application is required to apply for a specific Stanford GSB Fellowship, you will be required to complete our Fellowship Data Form (the Financial Aid office will notify students when this is available), which enables us to match your background with our donors’ preferences.
Fellowship funding is available for all MBA financial aid applicants who have financial need. In addition, Stanford GSB offers some fellowships for specific target audiences. Applying for these opportunities may require completing an additional application.
