Expanding access and opportunity through financial aid is the first part of an undergraduate experience that nurtures the entire student, inside and outside the classroom. Through academic and social enrichment initiatives, public service commitments, experiential learning opportunities, and on- and off-campus support programs, Stanford students gain not only skills and knowledge, but also breadth, compassion, resilience, and the capacity for leadership.
