Eligibility

Our eligibility requirements help you determine if you may apply to be a Knight-Hennessy Scholar.

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program is a multidisciplinary and multicultural community. There are no restrictions based on age, college or university, field of study, or career aspiration. We encourage citizens and residents of all countries to apply.  We do not require applicants to seek endorsements from colleges, universities, or other institutions.

There are two baseline eligibility requirements.

  • First, in addition to applying to Knight-Hennessy Scholars, you must apply to, be accepted by, and enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate degree program. Each incoming Knight-Hennessy Scholar must be a newly enrolling student in a Stanford graduate program including, but not limited to, DMA, JD, MA, MBA, MD, MFA, MPP, MS, or PhD programs. There are no quotas by discipline or program. Note that we will give priority consideration to those who will spend at least two years studying at Stanford.
  • Second, you must have earned, in January 2015 or later, a U.S. bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a college or university of recognized standing.
To apply to join the cohort in: You  must have earned your first bachelor’s degree by:
2022 January 2015 or later
2023 January 2016 or later

Fully Funded Stanford University Scholarship 2022/2023

For U.S. military (active or veteran) applicants, we extend the eligibility window by two years in acknowledgement of longer service commitments; you must have earned your degree in January 2013 or later to enroll in 2022. Current college students are eligible if you will earn your first degree by September 2022.  Within the eligibility window, we do not give preference based on recency of the degree.

Please note that a small number of Stanford graduate degree programs are not eligible for Knight-Hennessy Scholars

Scholarship Coverage

Stanford University Scholarships provide the recipient with following benefits:

  • A travel stipend intended to cover an economy-class ticket for one annual trip to and from Stanford.
  • A stipend for living and academic expenses (such as room and board, books, academic supplies, instructional materials, local transportation, and reasonable personal expenses).
  • A fellowship that is applied immediately to tuition and associated costs (in accordance with the regular departmental level of enrolment).
  • The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program typically does not cover costs that your home department at Stanford pays for its students – such as for subscriptions or lab equipment.

Required Documents

You must submit the following documents:

  • Provide an unofficial or self-reported transcript of your academic performance in college and, if applicable, graduate school for each institution you attended for an academic year or longer. If you are unable to provide an unofficial transcript, you may download the self-reported transcript template. Your transcript must, if applicable, include the degree conferred and the conferral date. We do not need transcripts from study-abroad experiences if those credits are included on your transcript.
  • You will include a resume that frames your intellectual, personal, and professional background and accomplishments. Our rule is one page for every decade of experience after secondary school.
  • Two recommendation letters. Know more about it here.
  • Essay (You may submit a maximum total of 1,750 words for both essays combined) include that:
    • Connect the dots. How have the influences in your life shaped you?
    • How will you pursue your life’s calling? How will your Stanford education and your Knight-Hennessy Scholars experience to support this?
  • Two short answer responses: Please tell us eight improbable facts about you. Please list three goals/objectives that you are working toward right now (being admitted to Stanford and/or being selected as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar can’t count as one of those goals).
  • Video story: Your video can be no longer than two minutes in duration. If you only need 30 seconds to answer, that’s fine. There is no expectation or obligation for you to speak for the maximum time.
  • In-person assessment.
