Master of Laboratory Animal Science
The department has limited funding available for MS students, which is awarded at the time of admissions by the program.
In addition, prospective students are encouraged to seek funding through:
- External funding sources.
- Graduate financial aid at Stanford.
- The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program awards up to 100 high-achieving students every year with full funding to pursue a graduate education at Stanford, including the Master of Science in Laboratory Animal Science. The application for the 2021 cohort will be available online in May 2020.
- Research or teaching assistantships.
Coterminal Stanford Student Funding (For Currently Enrolled Stanford Undergraduates):
Access to financial aid and other options is very different for coterminal students and depends on the number of units and quarters as a registered student at Stanford.
Coterminal students have full access to undergraduate sources of financial aid until their twelfth quarter or four years of study. Coterminal students who have completed 180 units are eligible for University fellowships and assistantships. However, many federal and private fellowships and assistantships are awarded only to students who have received the bachelor's degree. Even after the conferral of the bachelors, there is no guarantee that a coterminal student will be awarded financial support via RA-ship, TA-ship or fellowship.
Upon completion of the requirements for the bachelor's degree, coterms may choose to obtain their bachelor's degree early. However, all classes after conferral of the degree may only be counted towards the graduate degree. Please note, part of the strategy which allows coterms maximal flexibility in their course of study is their dual status as both undergraduates and graduate students.
