The Department of Computer Science wants to ensure that students have the necessary resources to be successful in their undergraduate and/or graduate journey.
The Computer Science Department offers application fee waivers to diversity (broadly defined) candidates. We especially encourage applications from first-generation, low-income students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and those whose backgrounds and life experiences would bring additional dimenions to the Computer Science Department. The Computer Science Department is unable to offer a traditional fee waiver, however, the School of Engineering offers fee waivers.
The Student-Applicant Support Program (SASP) is an optional, student run program intended to give application feedback to diversity students (broadly defined) in advance of the department deadline as they apply to Stanford’s CS PhD program. We especially encourage applications from first-generation, low-income students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and those whose backgrounds and life experiences would bring additional dimensions to the Computer Science Department. Applicants may receive one round of meaningful feedback on their resume and statement of purpose from a current PhD student (capacity limited). Participation in the Student-Applicant Support Program is separate from the admissions process and does not guarantee admission.
