QT Fund 🌿🪴🎍


What is it? The QT Fund was created as a systemic way to support students' lived experiences of being queer/trans/non binary/lgb2 and address the specific financial hurdles students encounter and burdens they bear when navigating systems of inequity at Stanford and beyond.

What can it cover? As part of QSR and Weiland’s mission to support the health and wellness of students in the queer and trans communities, this fund is designed to financially support students to access gender and sexuality affirming medical, legal and mental health services (e.g. co-pays for therapy, costs of name changes, surgery costs).

What else do I need to know? All enrolled & registered students at Stanford are eligible, including postdocs and students on a leave of absence. No prior involvement/affiliation with Weiland, CAPS, Vaden, or QSR required. There is a $500 grant limit per student per academic year. Funding will most likely be configured and awarded according to the quarterly amount requested. 

Funding for the QT Fund comes from QSR and the Weiland Health Initiative, whose missions strive to support students of all genders and sexual identities at Stanford. Learn more here!
