National and International Scholarships
Knight-Hennessy Scholars (Stanford University)
Society’s problems are more complex than ever, requiring people with depth and range of subject expertise but who also have the ability to collaborate, communicate and understand other disciplines to arrive at answers that will advance humanity.
Widening gaps in opportunity and income; declining livability caused by population growth and environmental degradation; social instability owing to structural inequality and intergroup conflicts; persistent human health challenges despite rapidly rising costs; and numerous other intersecting challenges confront us today. The world needs leaders in government, business and nonprofits who can creatively address society’s thorniest problems.
Under the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, each year a group of 100 high-achieving students with demonstrated leadership and civic commitment, from a wide array of backgrounds and nationalities, will receive full funding to pursue a graduate education at Stanford. Their academic experience will focus on both subject-specific knowledge and leadership development to make an impact on the world.
The Knight-Hennessy Scholars is the largest fully endowed scholars program in the world. More than 80 percent of the endowment for the program will directly support the scholars to fund their graduate education and living expenses.
