Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program
Every year, up to 100 high-achieving students from around the world receives full funding to pursue any graduate degree at Stanford with Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program.
We believe Knight-Hennessy Scholars will attract the most promising future leaders from all disciplines and geographies to Stanford University. Here, you will engage in a transformative experience comprising multidisciplinary education, leadership development, and achieving a global perspective.
We encourage applications to Knight-Hennessy Scholars from citizens of all countries. That’s natural since we expect Knight-Hennessy Scholars to have a global impact. We expect that over time about one-third of our scholars will be from the U.S., and about two thirds will be from countries outside the U.S. Those numbers will fluctuate from year to year, since our goal is to admit the world’s very best students, regardless of location.
