Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program funds up to three years of graduate education at Stanford University for 100 scholars each year. A multi-disciplinary experience, Knight-Hennessy Scholars in different disciplines collaborate with one another to confront real-world problems and develop global leadership skills. If your graduate program exceeds three years, your home department will provide funding for the remainder of your studies. Scholars receive:

  • A fellowship applied directly to cover tuition and associated fees
  • A generous stipend comprising on-campus room and board; books, supplies, and instructional materials; health insurance and associated fees; travel to and from Stanford; local transportation; and reasonable personal expenses
  • Mentoring opportunities with established leaders in area of interest
  • Access to leadership development and experiential learning opportunities with your cohort

Citizens of all countries are encouraged to apply. Applicants may pursue any graduate program offered at Stanford and must apply to that program separately. Undergraduate students may apply as long as a bachelor’s degree is completed before enrollment as a graduate student at Stanford. Eligibility to apply lasts for five years after receiving your undergraduate degree.
