You are eligible to apply to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program if you received your first/bachelor’s degree in 2014 or later. That means:

  • You must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from a college or university of recognized standing;
  • You must have graduated in January 2014 through September 2021 to enroll at Stanford in autumn 2021.
  • U.S. military (active or veteran) applicants: You receive a two-year extension of eligibility due to longer service commitments. You are eligible if you earned your undergraduate (bachelor’s or first) degree in 2012 or later.
  • If you are still in college studying for your first/bachelor’s degree, you are eligible to apply as long as you will complete your first/bachelor’s degree before you enroll as a graduate student at Stanford.
  • You must also meet the requirements of the Stanford graduate program(s) that you wish to pursue to be eligible for the Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program.
  • You must complete not only your Knight-Hennessy Scholars application, but also the entire application process for your graduate degree program — including any standardized test that your graduate degree program requires (GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, etc.) and, if needed, an English proficiency test (TOEFL; or, for MBA program only, IELTS).
  • Although we expect Knight-Hennessy Scholars to have performed well, there is no minimum requirement for your grades or scores.

Funding includes tuition, stipend, graduate program and related academic expenses, with additional financial support available.
