Knight-Hennessy Scholars at Stanford

•Stanford's leaders and alumni concluded that a program focused on building a community of graduate students from across the university, with a strong program of mentoring and leadership development, could drive progress in the world. The Scholars program will build a multidisciplinary cohort of Stanford graduate students dedicated to finding solutions to the world's great challenges. This group is pursuing a calling rather than a credential.
•Scholars may pursue a graduate education in any of Stanford's graduate degree programs. Citizens of all countries are welcome to apply. A student is eligible if he/she earned an undergraduate degree in 2013 or later. A student may have earned, or be pursuing, a graduate degree - as long as he/she earned your undergraduate degree in 2013 or later.

The application for the pioneer class (entering Stanford in Fall 2018) will open in May 2017 and is due on September 27, 2017.
•Candidates must apply not only to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, but also to her/his graduate program of interest. Most graduate programs will ask candidates to complete the departmental application materials by November 15, 2017 (the MBA and MD programs have earlier deadlines). Please check the website of the specific department after April 2017 for more information.

•We will invite 100 applicants to campus for a Candidate Immersion Weekend on January 12-14, 2018.
