Welcome to Stanford

The unconstrained spirit of your professors and fellow students, as well as your immersion in the world’s hub of innovation, will inspire you to explore as-yet unknown possibilities across academic disciplines.

As a Knight-Hennessy Scholar, you will be integrated into the lifeblood of the campus, participating in the academic and cultural life of the university and as you prepare yourself to address global issues of concern.

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program will facilitate ongoing interaction with your peers and alumni, and Denning House in the heart of the Stanford campus will become the convening hub for the community. Just to be clear, Denning House is where the Scholars will meet, not where you will live. Knight-Hennessy Scholars will be housed and integrated within the Stanford graduate community of 9,000 students.

Learn more about on and off campus housing, family life, diversity, accessibility, campus community and more at the incoming graduate student gateway.
