Call for Applications - Spring 2022 School of Engineering (SoE) Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) Travel Award


The purpose of the School of Engineering (SoE) Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) Travel Award is to recognize exceptional work done by graduate students in the realm of outreach and mentorship to underserved and underrepresented communities or individuals. Graduate students who win this award have demonstrated a commitment to JEDI work and have positively impacted the communities they have served. Their work does not need to have directly impacted SoE at Stanford, but the award will prioritize work which has been previously uncompensated. This award was developed and is managed by the SoE Dean's Graduate Student Advisory Council.

Nature of Award

Winners of this honor will be awarded up to $750 to supplement or cover their attendance at a conference. This award is intended to honor work in JEDI initiatives while simultaneously helping to further a student's career by sending graduate students to conferences with technical (directly related to your research) or non-technical (e.g. affinity group conferences) topics that will support career development.


Any SoE graduate student may apply to this award. Use the following steps to apply:
3.    Complete the SoE JEDI Travel Award application form by May 18th, 2022. Incomplete applications will be disregarded.
4.    The endorsement that follows an application will be due by May 25th, 2022. Endorsers should be Stanford-affiliated (i.e., Research Advisors, Academic Advisors or, Appropriate Administrators... etc.).

Decision Process

Nominees will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
1.    Is the nominee's work relevant to JEDI?
2.    Over what span of time has this person been committed to JEDI work? (years)
3.    Over that time period, what impact did this engagement in JEDI work have on this person's time? (hours)
4.    What is the realized or potential impact of their work?
5.    To what extent has the nominee's work gone without recognition or compensation?
