The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program at Stanford University funds up to three years of study for any graduate degree(s) at Stanford to which you are admitted at the time you are selected as a scholar.

It cultivates a diverse, multidisciplinary community of emerging leaders from around the world and guides them to collaborate, innovate, and communicate as they prepare to address the complex challenges facing society. Knight-Hennessy Scholars become part of a supportive family of fellow scholars. Through the King Global Leadership Program, scholars will broaden knowledge, develop skills, and strengthen character; this platform provides a collection of community experiences, workshops, meetings with leaders, domestic and global study trips, and personal development opportunities. Knight-Hennessy Scholars also receive funding for graduate study at Stanford University.

If your degree program exceeds three years — such as an M.D. or Ph.D. program, or a Stanford dual- or joint-degree program — then your Stanford home department(s) will fund the remainder of your education to the extent consistent with its standard funding commitment for that program. (That means, for example, your program may fund you for one additional year for some Ph.D.’s and three additional years for others)… more
