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

Stanford Graduate Degree Program Deadline for KHS Applicants: The application deadline for Stanford graduate degree programs has now passed

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 graduate degree program

You will submit an application to Knight-Hennessy Scholars. The Knight-Hennessy Scholars application is due by October 12, 2022, 1:00 pm Pacific Time. The KHS application deadline in October 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 or use the drop-down menu above to confirm the deadline for KHS applicants, which may be earlier than the program's regular application deadline.
