Stanford PACS supports student research by awarding funding to current Stanford students on a quarterly basis.
Please see the appropriate section for details about the grants and keep the upcoming grant application deadlines in mind.
As a leading research center dedicated to developing and sharing knowledge that can create positive social change, Stanford PACS is committed to supporting and nurturing promising new scholars interested in the study of philanthropy and civil society. In this spirit, the center offers a number of small grants each quarter to support student research in related areas. These grants typically support undergraduate honors theses, masters’ students’ capstone projects, and doctoral student research.
In addition to financial support, we also invite our small grants recipients to engage with the broader Stanford PACS community and learn from established scholars, practitioners and leaders of social change. It offers students the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with Stanford PACS and enables them to chart productive careers in the study or practice of philanthropy.
Stanford PACS small grants typically support undergraduate honors theses, masters’ students’ capstone projects, and doctoral student research. Eligible expenses could include database purchases, travel expenses, conference fees, telephone costs or other expenses related to data collection and analysis.
The grant amounts typically range from $500 to $2,500 to undergraduate and graduate Stanford students who are pursuing research related to philanthropy or civil society.
