Diversity Dissertation Research Opportunity (DDRO)


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:

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