All funds, other than tickets purchased directly by the Stanford Center on Global Poverty and Development on behalf of the recipient, will be dispersed as Stipend Funding via the Graduate Financial Support (GFS) system. Stipend Funding is taxable income, although no tax forms are generated by the university. International students may have taxes deducted before funds are released. Your budget may take the taxes on Stipend Funding into account, but the total request may not exceed $7K for exploratory awards or $25K for full awards. Please note that proposals, particularly for full awards, may be partially funded.
