You are eligible to apply if you are applying to enroll in a full-time graduate program(s) at Stanford (for example, but not limited to, DMA, JD, MA, MBA, MD, MFA, MPP, MS, or PhD) or if you plan on pursuing one of Stanford’s many joint- and dual- graduate degree options (for example, but not limited to, MD+PhD, JD+MA, MBA+MS).
3. You are eligible to apply if you received your first/bachelor’s degree in 2014 or later. That means
** You must have graduated in January 2014 through September 2021 to enroll at Stanford in autumn 2021.

1. As a result of COVID-19, my home institution graded an entire semester P/F. How will this impact the evaluation of my transcript?
We recognize that many institutions (including Stanford University) moved to a pass/fail or credit/no credit grading policy as a result of COVID-19. We will not penalize you for an institutional change that was out of your control. We will continue to review your application contextually.
2. Is there a minimum GPA or test score requirement to be a Knight-Hennessy Scholar?
Although we expect Knight-Hennessy Scholars to have performed well, there is no minimum requirement for your grades or scores. Please check with the graduate department websites for their requirements to be accepted to the graduate degree program you are interested in
3. Can I update my test score after I have submitted my application?
Yes, you can do this by submitting the Test Score Update form available on your status page after you submit your application.
4. Do I need to submit my English proficiency test results to Knight-Hennessy Scholars?
If you have to submit English proficiency test results to the degree program you are applying to, then yes, you need to submit to Knight-Hennessy Scholars as well.
5. Can I ask the same person to provide recommendations for both Knight-Hennessy Scholars and my graduate degree program?
It is fine to ask the same person to provide recommendations for your graduate program and for the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, but ensure that he/she submits distinctive letters of reference.
