Eligibility For The Knight-Hennessy Scholars at Stanford University

There are two basic eligibility criteria.

To begin, in addition to applying to Knight-Hennessy Scholars (KHS), you must apply to, be accepted by, and enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate degree program, such as the DMA, JD, MA, MBA, MD, MFA, MPP, MS, or Ph.D.

You must fulfill at least one of the following four requirements:

  • You are applying to KHS and a full-time Stanford graduate degree program separately but concurrently so that you can begin both in the same year.
  • You have already been offered and deferred admission to a full-time Stanford graduate degree program, and you plan to apply to KHS in the same year.
  • You are a current Stanford graduate student who wishes to add a second full-time Stanford graduate degree program, beginning both KHS and the new program in the same year.
  • You are a current Stanford Ph.D. student in your first year of enrollment, and you plan to apply to KHS in your second year of Ph.D. enrollment.

Second, you must have earned a U.S. bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a recognized college or university in January 2016 or later.

To be eligible for the 2023 cohort, you must have earned a bachelor’s degree by January 2016 or later; to be eligible for the 2024 cohort, you must have earned a bachelor’s degree by January 2017 or later.

Application Instructions

To be considered for the scholarship, you must apply to both the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program and your Stanford graduate degree program separately and concurrently. The Knight Hennesy Program deadline is October 12, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

The application deadline for your Stanford graduate degree program varies by program. You must check the website of your desired program to confirm the application deadline, which is usually earlier.

Each incoming Knight-Hennessy scholar must also apply to, be accepted by, and enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate degree program.

If you have already been offered and deferred admission to enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate program in 2023, or you are a Stanford PhD student who started your PhD in 2022 and will begin your second year in 2023, then you must submit one application to Knight-Hennessy Scholars.

It is important to go to the official website for more information on how to apply for this scholarship.
