The Knight-Hennessy Scholars is the largest fully endowed scholars program in the world. The program annually identifies a group of 100 high-achieving students from around the world with demonstrated leadership and civic commitment to receive full funding to pursue a graduate education at Stanford, with the goal of developing a new generation of global leaders.
- Open to citizens of all countries.
- You must apply to and enroll in any full-time graduate degree program at Stanford (e.g., JD, MA, MBA, MD, MS, or PhD) or one of Stanford’s joint- and dual- graduate degree options (e.g., MD+PhD, JD+MA, MBA+MS).
- You must apply within four years, and enroll within five years, after you earn your first bachelor’s degree.
- Eligibility requirements for the scholars program is the same as the Stanford graduate program(s) that you wish to pursue. You must complete the entire application process for your department – including any standardized test that your discipline requires (GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, etc.) and, if needed, an English proficiency test.
Applicants must submit both the Knight-Hennessy online application as well as a Stanford Graduate Degree program application by their individual deadlines. Please be advised that the MD and MBA program deadlines are substantially earlier than those for other programs.
