Knight-Hennessy Scholarship, Fall 2018 (Stanford University)
Deadline: 12 September 2018.
As a Knight-Hennessy Scholar you will develop both the depth and range of subject expertise to confront the numerous grand challenges and opportunities of the future. You will be part of a unique community of change agents from a diverse range of backgrounds. This is a community that will support you, motivate you, and hold you accountable for achieving your goals even when the odds of success seem likely against you.
Stanford University encourages applications to Knight-Hennessy Scholars from citizens of all countries. The university expects that over time about one-third of their 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 their goal is to admit the world’s very best students, regardless of location.
You are eligible to apply to Knight-Hennessy Scholars if you apply during your final year of study for your first/bachelor's degree or within four years of earning your first/bachelor’s degree. For the cohort that applies in 2018, that means you must have graduated in January 2014 through September 2019 to enroll at Stanford in September 2019.
The Stanford education of Knight-Hennessy Scholars is fully funded. The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program funds up to the first three years of your graduate education, and if your degree program exceeds three years — such as an MD or PhD program, or a Stanford dual- or joint-degree program — then your Stanford home department will fund the remainder of your education to the extent consistent with its standard funding commitment for that program. (For example, some programs typically fund six years for PhDs, while others fund five years for PhDs.)
Deadline (fall 2019): 12 September 2018
