Campus Contacts

If you still are in college when you apply to be a Knight-Hennessy Scholar, then we ask that your university provide an institutional assessment.

This letter is not required if you earned your first/bachelor's degree in 2016 or earlier. If you completed your degree in 2017, however, then you may wish to follow this path. 

The institutional assessment should provide information about your experience or performance, within the specific context of your college or university, that is not reflected elsewhere in your application. We request specific examples, anecdotes, and evidence of your ability and determination to make a difference. Your college’s fellowship advising office (this is different from your college's financial aid office), dean of students, president’s office, or other responsible official will provide this letter.

  • Some institutions will require you to obtain a campus endorsement, which may require interviews with faculty/staff of your college before the fellowship advisor sends the institutional endorsement.
  • Campuses that provide institutional assessments or endorsements often have an internal deadline that requires you to submit a pre-application well in advance of the September 27, 2017 Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program deadline. 

Each campus contact listed below is a great source of guidance on applying to graduate school and for selective fellowships and scholarships. If your institution has identified a Knight-Hennessy Scholars contact, then you may search below to find exactly whom you should contact to get started.

If your institution does not have a campus contact listed below, then check whether your campus has a person designated to advise students who are applying for Fulbright Fellowships, Gates Cambridge Scholarships, Rhodes Scholarships, etc.

  • If so, that would be the right person to contact or place to start.
  • If there is no such person/office  this often is the case at international institutions  then we suggest that you select an appropriate campus office (often a central, campus-wide, or university-level office like dean of students, university registrar, or career services) or faculty member.
