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 2024, or you are a Stanford PhD student who will start your PhD in 2023 and will begin your second year in 2024, 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.

You will submit an application to Knight-Hennessy Scholars. The Knight-Hennessy Scholars application deadline is October 11, 2023, 1:00pm Pacific Time. The KHS application deadline is the same for all applicants, regardless of the Stanford graduate 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 deadline varies by program. Check with your desired program to confirm the deadline for KHS applicants. Please note that KHS applicants must apply to the graduate program by December 1, 2023 or the program’s standard deadline, whichever is earlier.
