​All Citizens Welcome!

Stanford University encourage applications to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program from citizens of all countries. That’s natural since SU expect Knight-Hennessy Scholars to have global impact.

Stanford  expect that over time about one third of our Scholars will be from the United States, and about two thirds will be from countries outside the United States. Those numbers will fluctuate from year to year, since the goal is to admit the world’s very best students, regardless of location.
