Always at the forefront of innovation, Stanford Engineering and the Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering seeks to create pivotal solutions to important global problems and to educate leaders who will improve the world through the power of engineering principles, techniques, and systems.
Gifts to the Engineering Fund build vital resources for the school and for ICME that are ready wherever and whenever they are needed most. Such flexibility enables us to bring on promising new faculty, fund out-of-the-box teaching ideas, and take risks on new research concepts.
Leaning into the Future
What does a Stanford engineer do? How does a Stanford engineer change the world?
Your contributions keep alive our tradition of asking—and answering—questions in new ways. The long-term results are apparent in our ability to solve some of the most profound technical challenges of our day. As that ability continues to grow, so does the impact of your generosity.
Gifts equip cutting-edge facilities where faculty and students tackle urgent global challenges.
Built in partnership with the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) and with the generous support of SAP, the HIVE is open to the Stanford community for research visualization projects and courses.
Gifts help create an unparalleled experience for students by funding seminar series and innovations in teaching.
The AI for Good Seminar Series brought together experts to explore ways artificial intelligence can benefit society and our planet.
ICME's Analytics Accelerator course gave students hands-on experience with real-world project-based research and experiential classroom activities.
Gifts provide support for students to focus on research.
Innovation Scholarship Programs provide funding and opportunities for students to work with industry technical teams on innovative new approaches and solutions for real-world problems.
The Gene Golub Graduate Fellowship Fund in Computational and Mathematical Engineering
Established in 2009 in-memory of Stanford Professor Gene Golub, the Gene Golub Graduate Fellowship Fund in Computational and Mathematical Engineering provides financial support, through fellowships or assistantships, for Ph.D. students in Stanford's Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering.
If you wish to contribute to the Gene Golub Graduate Fellowship Fund, you can make a donation online via a one-time gift or a recurring gift or pledge. Please designate the gift for the "School of Engineering," "Computational Mathematics & Engineering" and "Gene Golub Fellowship Fund" in the Special Instructions.

ICME is grateful for the individual donors and corporations who invest in our students and faculty. These are a few of our most impactful programs:
Vanguard Scholarship in honor of Annie J. Easley
Annie J. Easley (April 23, 1933 – June 25, 2011) was a computer scientist, mathematician, and rocket scientist at the NASA Lewis Research Center. She was a leading member of the team which developed software for the Centaur rocket stage, and was one of the first African-Americans to work as a computer scientist at NASA.
The Vanguard Scholars Program in honor of Annie J. Easley, is designed to support ICME MS students in their studies and research to support and promote rising stars in the field of computer science, data science and computational mathematics.
PayPal Innovation Scholars Program
The PayPal Innovation Scholars program recognizes aspiring scholars in fields such as graph clustering, tensor networks, reinforcement learning, social physics, data privacy and identity, explainable AI, neuromorphic computing, and quantum computing. The award was established to encourage scholarship and research in these emerging technology areas, which hold great promise across many industries to improve performance, lower costs, increase accuracy and provide new research and business insights.
Schlumberger Innovation Scholarship Program
The Schlumberger Innovation Scholars program recognizes aspiring scholars in fields such as machine learning and deep learning, data science, and quantum computing. The award was established to encourage scholarship and research in these emerging technology areas, which hold great promise across many industries to improve performance, lower costs, increase accuracy and provide new research and business insights.
TOTAL Innovation Scholarship Program
The TOTAL Innovation Scholarship program supports several PhD students each year who are applying their studies to areas of high interest to TOTAL, such as physical modeling, predictive analytics, data science, and high performance computing. In addition to funding, TOTAL Scholars have the opportunity to work with faculty and TOTAL technical teams to innovative new approaches and solutions around affordable, reliable, and clean energy.
Seminar Series and Teaching Innovations
AI for Good Seminar Series | Supported by Google
In 2020, thanks to financial support provided by Google, ICME was able to present the AI for Good Seminar Series (CME 500).
The AI for Good Seminar Series (CME 500) explored ways artificial intelligence can benefit society and our planet through conversations presentations by Stanford Faculty, Research Scientist, Non-profit and Industry Leaders.
Analytics Accelerator | Supported by Accenture
Thanks to financial support from Accenture, ICME introduced Analytics Accelerator (CME217/BIODS217) – a multidisciplinary graduate level course designed to give students hands-on experience working in teams through real-world project-based research and experiential classroom activities.
In Fall 2020, ICME Master’s and PhD students as well as graduate students from Stanford School of Medicine and School of Engineering focused on COVID-19 research projects.
