Applying for Dean’s Office Financial Support

Main content start

The Engineering Coterminal Fellowship program focuses on engineering coterms who demonstrated substantial financial need as undergraduates, and whose eligibility for undergraduate aid has been exhausted. Applicants must have been admitted to coterm-MS study in one of the 10 programs in Engineering.

A faculty committee will review applications, and select 40+ students for the next cohort. Awards will provide partial funding (approximately half of a full graduate fellowship/assistantship) for up to 3 quarters. These can be combined with partial RA, CA or fellowship support from faculty or departments.


First round funding applications: Wednesday, February 1, 2023
(for current co-terms). Decisions will be released in late February or early March. 

Second round applications: Thursday, March 29, 2023
(for February/March admits, but open to all)

To apply:

The Engineering Coterminal Fellowship Application is hosted on SOLO (Stanford On & Off-campus Learning Opportunities). For info and to apply, you can either go directly to this link:; or search in for "engineering", for "coterm", etc.

The Engineering coterm page has general information about coterminal study and funding, with links to our departments and to the university’s coterm policies and procedures.

If you have questions or concerns about the Engineering Dean’s coterm funding program, you can contact Samantha Schwartz in the Office of Student Affairs.
