Scholarship/Financial Aid

We offer limited partial or full scholarships to students from underrepresented backgrounds such as low income status, future first-generation college students, ethnic minorities, and individuals with disabilities  who show academic excellence and keen interest in the field of medicine. Only US Citizens and Permanent Residents are eligible for program fee scholarships. US citizens and permanent residents whose annual household income is under $80,000 or are enrolled in a program that aids low income families, can submit an application fee waiver request using this form.

Please do not apply for a scholarship unless you are truly in financial need as funds are limited, and we want as many students to have access to our program as possible. 

To apply for a scholarship, the student must complete the Stanford CSI application, including the financial aid essay, and meet one or more of the following criteria:

  1. CSI defines "low income" as student's annual family income falls below $80,000 per year.
  2. Student is enrolled in a federal, state or local program that aids students from low-income families.
  3. A request from high school principal, high school counselor, financial aid officer, or community leader that explains a student’s financial need.

Scholarship/Financial aid requests must be submitted within the application and are contingent on acceptance into the program. If selected, students will be required to provide parents' previous two years federal and state tax returns to verify financial need before the scholarship is awarded.
