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.

Starting in 2018, the program will annually offer full tuition and board to 100 students — a third of them from the United States and two-thirds from abroad — who will gain admittance to one of Stanford’s seven graduate schools and commit to working on important issues in small, multidisciplinary teams. Stanford has already raised $750m for this new program.
