The Knight-Hennessy Scholarship offers full support for graduate study in any program at Stanford University. The program aims to prepare a new generation of global leaders with the skills to address the complex challenges facing the world. The program provides full funding to pursue a graduate education at Stanford, focused on both subject-specific knowledge and leadership development to make an impact on the world. Knight-Hennessy Scholars will thus be selected both for their academic accomplishments and leadership potential.
Application instructions can be found on the Knight-Hennessy Scholarship webpage.
Currently, applicants are limited to two (2) letters of recommendation. These should come from people who know you best. While the University of Texas does not require a campus interview for selection, you are encouraged to consult with Professor Douglas Bruster early in your application process.
Applications open May 1, 2018. Last year, applications were due at the end of September.
