We are delighted to announce the scholars in the 2021 cohort of Knight-Hennessy Scholars!
The 76 new scholars come from 26 countries and will pursue degrees in 37 graduate degree programs across all seven of Stanford’s graduate schools. Fifty-seven percent are women and 46% hold a passport from a non-U.S. country. Fifty-six percent of U.S. scholars identify as a person of color, and 11% have served in the U.S. military. The scholars earned undergraduate degrees at 16 international and 32 U.S. institutions. Twenty percent are the first in their family to attend college.
