The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program announced 69 student awardees from around the world as its second annual cohort of global leaders on Tuesday.
While the book focuses on ten traits, Hennessy’s remarks centered around only four: humility, empathy, collaboration and storytelling. Hennessy shared several anecdotes from his tenure as University president.
Three Knight-Hennessy Scholars attended Stanford as undergraduates: Jason Khoo ’16, Matthew Colford ’14 and Amanda Zerbe ’15.
The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program has chosen its pioneering cohort of 49 students, according to a Stanford News report released Thursday.
The newly-created Knight-Hennessy Scholars program aims to attract talented students from around the world to pursue graduate studies at Stanford, including M.D. and J.D. programs. The scholarship will prioritize candidates who demonstrate excellence in thought, leadership and character.
