Restricted to: Doctoral Students

Event Details:

DDRO funds cover expenses for doctoral dissertation research on diversity-related topics. Attend this session to learn more about the application process and have your questions answered.

DDRO provides competitive awards to doctoral students for research expenses related to dissertations that focus on some aspect of diversity, broadly defined to include culture, socioeconomic background, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disabilities, religion, and life experience. These funds help advance Stanford’s commitment to diversity.

DDRO accepts applications from Stanford doctoral students from any degree program who:

  • have been admitted to candidacy
  • have an approved dissertation proposal
  • will be registered in the quarter they receive funding
  • are making satisfactory academic progress

Students may request up to $5,000; some awards will be less than requested. Requests must be for expenses that are not covered through other sources of funding from external or university sources. Applicants may simultaneously apply for other sources of funding, but may not accept multiple sources of funding for the same expenses.

Registration is required to attend this session. Please visit: to register and receive the Zoom link via the confirmation email.
