Our mission is to promote mental health and wellness across the spectrum of gender identities and sexual orientations through education, training and clinical services at Stanford and beyond.
This is an official guide to resources and information pertaining to trans, non-binary, and gender questioning students at Stanford. This resource guide is a constantly evolving collaborative effort between members of the Stanford trans community, staff, and the many offices, services, programs and organizations at Stanford committed to supporting them.
A discussion, support, and community space series created directly from requests by you, the students. Each meeting hopes to create space for a particular group to explore the unique experiences, challenges, and positives of questioning identity. Food provided and no RSVP necessary!

The QT Umbrella Assistance Fund Winter Quarter Application opens on January 27.
Please share widely!
As part of QSR and Weiland’s mission to support the health and wellness of students in the queer and trans communities, we are in the second phase of our pilot program designed to financially support students to access gender and sexuality affirming medical, legal and mental health services.
This can include fees and funds needed to access:
--Mental health counseling (ex: out of pocket or co-pays);
--Gender affirmative medical services (ex: hormones/surgery costs);
--Legal services (ex: changing gender markers, or other legal documentation).
We created The QT Umbrella Assistance Fund (The QT Fund) as a systemic way to address and support students lived experience of being Non Binary/Trans/LGB/Queer and to acknowledge the specific financial hurdles students encounter and burdens they bear when navigating systems of inequity at Stanford and beyond. We strive to be rooted in transparency and equity, to not act as gatekeepers, and to trust students' processes, transitions, and lived realities.
The application will be open and accepting applications for Winter quarter from January 27-February 21. The review committee will meet to review applications and be in touch with applicants by the beginning of March.
In addition to funds provided by the Weiland Health Initiative and Queer Student Resources, the QT Fund includes a generous contribution from the Provost and Vice Provost of Student Affairs in acknowledgment of the higher rates of gender based violence and lower rates of connection to the University and its systems, experienced by Non Binary/Trans/Queer students.
All enrolled students at Stanford are eligible, including postdocs. Exceptions can be made for students on health-related leaves of absence. No prior involvement in or affiliation with Weiland, CAPS, Vaden, or QSR is required. Our intention is for these funds to be used to support students to access services and other resources not available on campus.
