  • How many units are required to graduate?

A minimum of 80 units are required to graduate from the MIP program.

  • Is fellowship funding available from Stanford? 

​Limited fellowship funds are available. Please be sure to indicate your interest in financial aid on the application by checking "Yes" next to the relevant question. Admission and fellowship offers will be communicated to applicants at the same time. No separate funding application is required. 

In addition, teaching and research assistantships are available to students starting in the third quarter of study. However, opportunities are limited and contingent on availability and funds. It is the responsibility of the student to secure an assistantship. Please see our Funding and Financial Aid Page as well as the Stanford Financial Aid website for detailed information on loans and other funding opportunities.
