Social Impact Loan Forgiveness Program

The GSB is excited to announce the recent expansion of our Loan Forgiveness Program to include support to students interested in pursuing social impact for-profit careers. 

We are dedicated to preparing our graduates to lead institutions in all industries. In order to encourage students to make meaningful contributions to social justice, sustainability, or the health of democratic institutions, we offer a loan forgiveness program to reduce the financial burden of educational debt by paying a percentage of graduates’ Stanford GSB loan obligations. Students must be employed in the nonprofit or public service sectors or in high impact businesses.

You can participate in the Stanford Loan Forgiveness Program at any point while you are repaying your Stanford GSB loans.

 

Eligibility

Eligibility during any given year does not automatically qualify you for a future year. Loan forgiveness is dependent on available funding.

This is not an entitlement program. The financial aid office determines eligibility for this program on a case-by-case basis, and these decisions are final. We reserve the right to change eligibility guidelines and required application materials at any time. It is also within our discretion to take into account other relevant criteria as needed when determining your eligibility.

If you are a joint or dual degree student, contact the Stanford GSB Financial Aid Office before applying for more information about your eligibility.
