Our dates and deadlines help you plan ahead for your applications.

Each incoming Knight-Hennessy scholar must also apply to, be accepted by, and enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate degree program.

If you have already been offered and deferred admission to enroll in a full-time Stanford graduate program in 2023, or you are a Stanford PhD student who started your PhD in 2022 and will begin your second year in 2023, then you must submit one application to Knight-Hennessy Scholars.

Otherwise, you must submit two separate but concurrent applications; one to Knight-Hennessy Scholars, and one to your Stanford graduate degree program. This applies both to candidates seeking admission to their first Stanford graduate degree program, as well as to current Stanford graduate students adding a second graduate degree.

Knight-Hennessy Scholars

Stanford degree program

You will submit an application to Knight-Hennessy Scholars. The Knight-Hennessy Scholars application opens in July and is due in October. The KHS application deadline in October is the same for all applicants, regardless of the Stanford degree program to which you will apply.

You will submit a completely separate application to your Stanford graduate degree program. Unlike the KHS application, which has a uniform deadline for everyone, the Stanford application deadlines vary by program. It is important to check with your desired program to confirm its deadline for KHS applicants, which may be earlier than its regular application deadline.

KHS Application Opens: July 1, 2022

KHS Application Deadline: October 12, 2022, 1:00 pm Pacific Time

Stanford Degree Program Application Deadline: Dependent on which program you select

Stanford degree program deadlines will be posted in July.
