About this Manual
This site is for department administrators and student services officers who control or administer graduate financial support, including assistantships and fellowships. The Graduate Financial Support system (GFS) is the online application used at Stanford to administer assistantships and fellowships for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
In 2002, Stanford University converted its NSI "prism-based" system for graduate financial support to a new PeopleSoft application. In 2008, all PeopleSoft applications at Stanford were upgraded to a new version (Version 9).
