Stanford's Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program is one of the newest and largest national fellowship opportunities. This program "will annually identify a group of 100 high-achieving students from around the world with demonstrated leadership and civic commitment to receive full funding to pursue a wide-ranging graduate education at Stanford, with the goal of developing a new generation of global leaders. The Knight-Hennessy Scholars is the largest fully endowed scholars program in the world."
Scholars will be able to combine a first-class education in any of Stanford's graduate degree programs with leadership development, mentorship, and experiential learning.
"Knight-Hennessy scholars are visionary thinkers who are curious, open-minded, analytical, eager for cross-cultural perspective, and genuinely excited to boldly and creatively address our world's most important challenges," according to the Knight-Hennessy website.
