Summer Session Grants (SSG)
The Summer Session Grant (SSG) provides funding for undergraduate students, especially for underrepresented groups. Students pursue coursework during the summer session at Stanford or other accredited colleges and universities.
The program assists students in completing courses required for an engineering major, e.g. engineering fundamentals, science, chemistry, differential equations, other math, GER, etc. It provides flexibility in the student's four year plans and an opportunity to improve the student's grade point average.
Students are selected according to their academic need and potential for achievement reflected in their application proposal. Selected students receive $100 to $3000 in grants. Units must be transferable.
Undergraduates must be a declared major or have academic interest in engineering and plan to complete courses during the summer session and use them towards graduation requirements. Applicants are especially sought from the following groups: women, Native Americans, African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
IMPORTANT: The flowcharts below will walk you through the application and award (reimbursement) process; deadlines included.
