Financial aid options for undergraduate summer enrollment at Stanford are limited and depend on whether you are a regular Stanford student, a student from another college or university, or a high school student.
Need-based Stanford scholarship funds for summer are available only to students who have missed a standard quarter of the same academic year, or those will graduate at the end of summer. Other students generally receive financial aid in the form of loans and job eligibility.
NOTE: Summer enrollment does count toward the twelve quarters of undergraduate enrollment that the Financial Aid Office uses to determine eligibility for Stanford scholarship funds, even if no scholarship funds are awarded for summer quarter.
The Stanford Financial Aid Office does not award financial aid to students who are not enrolled in degree programs at Stanford. If you are a student from another school who will enroll at Stanford for the summer, you should contact the financial aid office at your home schools for information about summer aid.
The Summer Session Office administers a scholarship program for certain high school students. The Stanford Financial Aid Office is not involved in this process. High school students should contact the Summer Session Office for scholarship application information.
