Resources for Fellowship Advisors

We appreciate your efforts to inform and guide your campus community about the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program. Please complete the Campus Contact form to be listed on the Knight-Hennessy Scholars website as the fellowship advisor for your campus.

Letter of Reference Overview

Each applicant to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program must obtain reference letters. Check back here in late April for more details on this requirement, including the number and types of letters. The recommendations are due by 1:00pm Pacific Time on September 12, 2018. This deadline applies no matter which graduate degree the applicant is pursuing. Recommenders may submit reference letters even after the applicant submits her/his Knight-Hennessy Scholars application.

Online Resources

We are committed to assisting you in supporting your students. For reference only, last year the following resources were available to fellowship advisors:

  • Watch last year's recording of Dean of Knight-Hennessy Scholar Admission Derrick Bolton's program overview for fellowship advisors.
  • Review a PDF sample of last year's Knight-Hennessy Scholars online application.
  • Visit the Advice for Recommenders page for general guidance on submitting a letter of reference, including tips on formatting and technical requirements.
  • Once the application is available, request an Applicant Report, and receive up to four reports that include all Knight-Hennessy Scholars applicants who attend or graduated from your institution.

Please feel free to contact us directly if you need assistance.
