Taking Care of Ourselves & Each Other

Graduate Students

Main content start

The Stanford FLI Student Success Center is also a hub for first-generation graduate students. We know that many of the challenges that FLI students face do not simply disappear after college and we are here for you. The FLI Student Success Center is currently working to better understand the unique needs of the FLI graduate community and concurrently designing programs and resources to address them.

Needs Assessment

The FLI Student Success Center and other allies are trying to determine the best way to support FLI graduate students - that's you! Fill out the needs assessment form to let us know what being FLI means to you, the challenges that you face, and we can better support the unique needs of FLI graduate student community. Response collection will continue until the end of Winter Quarter, 2022, and we hope to share what we learned with you soon after. Thank you for participating - your thoughts and experiences matter!

Academic & Student Life Resources

As a first-generation and/or low-income graduate student, you may continue to grapple with similar academic challenges as you did in undergraduate, or you may face new challenges in your graduate school journey such as writing your thesis, acquiring grants to fund your research or graduate degree etc. 

Financial Resources

Though there are many financial resources at Stanford designed for both graduate and FLI students, some expenses will inevitably arise throughout your time on campus. In order to support you through these challenges, we have compiled a few resources on this page to address common challenges around FLI financial wellness.
