The Summer Session Grant (SSG) provides funding for undergraduate students, especially diversity students, who are majoring in Engineering or who plan to declare Engineering as their major. Students pursue coursework during the summer session at Stanford or other accredited colleges and universities, to help them complete their undergraduate Engineering degree.
The program assists undergraduate students in completing courses required for an engineering major, e.g. engineering fundamentals, science, chemistry, differential equations, other math, GER, foreign language, 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 SoE 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, 1st Generation, and a broader diversity.
Your application will not be considered complete until you have submitted in PDF format a resume, four-year plan, and a description of the equivalent course at Stanford (including what college, course number, and description). Please submit all of these in PDF format to Martha Schmidhauser at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: SSG 2018.
NOTE: An incomplete application WILL DELAY a timely response to your request.
