Following last February’s announcement of the inaugural Knight-Hennessy Scholars program cohort, the program, which is the largest fully-endowed graduate studies program in the world, announced two additional Scholars earlier this year. This brings the total count from 49 to 51.
The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program has chosen its pioneering cohort of 49 students, according to a Stanford News report released Thursday.
During its December meeting, the Board of Trustees heard presentations on the “strengths and weaknesses” of Stanford’s three schools serving both undergraduate and graduate students. Members also approved various construction projects.
The Board of Trustees met this week to approve the University’s budget, move forward with four building projects and celebrate outgoing President John Hennessy and his wife Andrea Hennessy’s joint contributions to Stanford over the past 15 years.
