Knight-Hennessy Scholars Community

Community is a core part of the Knight-Hennessy Scholars (KHS) experience. Students come from all over the world and represent a vast array of cultures and perspectives. 

Scholars are addressing challenges and opportunities in their academic work that often require bridging disciplines, cultures, and areas of expertise. KHS brings scholars together to learn and build deep relationships that foster meaningful connections and lifelong friendships. 

Scholars are pursuing graduate degrees across all seven schools at Stanford, including Medicine, Engineering, Law, Business, Education, Humanities & Sciences, and Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences. 

In addition, scholars take part in activities across Stanford University and have access to the surrounding community of Silicon Valley. 

Knight-Hennessy scholars participate in the academic and cultural life of the university. Below are links to resources that provide valuable information about Stanford University for prospective graduate students.
