Stanford will celebrate the arrival of the first cohort of Knight-Hennessy Scholars on Saturday with Day One, an orientation program designed to introduce the students to each other and to the unique experiences that await them through its global leadership program.

The scholars – 51 graduate students from across the United States and around the world – are pursuing degrees in 31 departments from all seven of Stanford’s schools: Business; Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences; Education; Engineering; Humanities and Sciences; Law; and Medicine.

Nima Dahir is a 2018 EDGE-SBEH Fellow. Brandi Ransom is a 2017 EDGE-STEM Fellow.

Through a variety of programs, fellowships, and funding opportunities, VPGE supports interdisciplinary collaboration on campus.
