Financial Aid

Stanford is committed to providing a comprehensive need-based financial aid program that makes it financially possible for admitted students to attend. Approximately 70% of our students receive some form of aid to attend Stanford. About 58% of undergraduates receive aid from Stanford, including athletic scholarships. Last year 47% received need-based aid from Stanford and paid an average of $13,600 toward their bills.

If you have not already done so, you may still apply for financial aid. If you have already applied and wish to talk with a financial aid officer, we are offering advising sessions by appointment via Zoom or phone. We remain dedicated to helping you navigate the financial aid process.

For much more, please visit our comprehensive financial aid FAQs.

Academic Freedom and Exploration

Stanford creatively combines the robust resources of a leading research institution with the intimate intellectual nature of a liberal arts college. Our students enjoy learning for its own sake and their education shares a common foundation, but they follow their curiosity to explore many areas and show interdisciplinary strength. World-class faculty, small class sizes, global study, and hands-on research and service are just some of the resources that complement their academic journeys. As our motto states, “the wind of freedom blows.”
