Basic Stanford (SU) Grant
The maximum Stanford Grant for 2014-2015 is $11,500 per quarter for students paying full tuition, and $2,673 per quarter for students paying tuition at the TMR rate. Students paying the reduced research rate (i.e. completing a Medical Scholars Project) are ineligible for SU Grant funding.
Middle-Income Assistance Program Grant (MIAP)
The Middle-Income Assistance Program was established in an effort to provide financial assistance to students who come from middle-income families. Eligibility is based on:
- Students receiving less than $17,250 in Basic Stanford Grant support for three quarters of enrollment (or less than $23,000 for four quarters of enrollment).
- Students demonstrating at least $1 financial aid need.
Over-funding with MIAP is not allowed.
For the 2014-2015 academic year, Stanford University School of Medicine will match parental offers of $5,750 per quarter (up to $17,250 for those enrolled three quarters or up to $23,000 for those enrolled four quarters).
The MIAP grant awarded may not exceed the maximum grant allowed at the TMR tuition rate (e.g., $2,673 each quarter). Matching funds will be awarded only up to the cost of tuition.
Students paying the research rate (i.e. completing a Medical Scholars Project) are ineligible for MIAP funding.
Note: The manner in which matched funds are made available to the student is between the student and their parents. The School of Medicine Financial Aid Office does regulate how these funds are applied. Financial aid cannot replace matched funds.
Full Tuition (SU) Grant
Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, entering students may qualify for the Full Tuition Grant of $16,905 per quarter. Students from socially economical disadvantaged backgrounds are eligible based on the DHHS poverty guidelines; eligibility is assessed annually. Additional information is available from the School of Medicine Financial Aid Office.
