Financial support for Knight-Hennessy Scholars during graduate study

During each of the first three years of graduate study, Knight-Hennessy scholars receive several types of funding:

  • 🎓 A fellowship applied directly to cover tuition and associated fees 
  • 📚 A stipend for living and academic expenses (such as room and board, books, academic supplies, instructional materials, local transportation, and reasonable personal expenses)
  • 🌎 A travel stipend intended to cover an economy-class ticket for one annual trip to and from Stanford

Additional funding specific to certain years:

  • 💻 Newly enrolling scholars receive a one-time relocation stipend intended to offset some of the costs associated with relocation to the area and/or technology purchases.
  • 🤝 Scholars in their second and third years may apply for supplemental funds to support academic enrichment activities (e.g., conference travel).​

King Global Leadership Program

Funded by a generous gift from Dorothy and Robert King, MBA ’60, the King Global Leadership Program offers a wide range of workshops, lectures, projects, and experiences designed around the Knight-Hennessy Scholars Leadership Model.

These offerings complement scholars’ graduate school education and help them develop the traits and behaviors that will enable scholars to reach their leadership objectives.
