Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program at Stanford University| Apply by October 14, 2020

One Cohort With Many Backgrounds

Your fellow Knight-Hennessy Scholars will join Stanford from colleges and universities throughout the world, from a wide array of disciplines and professional experiences, and with a breadth of background, belief, and aspiration. This is a multifaceted community united by your curiosity and intellectual vitality, shared potential for leadership, and your humility and kindness.

Graduate Students at Stanford

Nearly 3,000 compelling graduate students enroll at Stanford annually. Next year, up to 80 (growing to 100 over time) will be Knight-Hennessy Scholars. Knight-Hennessy Scholars span all seven schools at Stanford. If you become a Knight-Hennessy Scholar, you’ll be in good company.

All Knight-Hennessy Scholars have to apply to and be accepted by a graduate program at Stanford at the same time they apply to Knight-Hennessy Scholars. Your graduate program will be your primary affiliation, and the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program will provide you with access to an additional community and opportunities tailored to scholars.

To be a Knight-Hennessy Scholar, you submit two applications:

We can select you as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar only if a graduate program admits you to Stanford. The graduate program, however, may admit you to Stanford even if you are not selected as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar.

Submitting Your Graduate Program Application

You should check each graduate program’s website for a sense of what it seeks in candidates. You must meet the requirements for admission to your home graduate program.

Review of Applications are done separately but in parallel

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program communicates regularly with each graduate program throughout the admission process to ensure that we are designating as Knight-Hennessy Scholars only those applicants who each program has determined are among its best.

We review your Knight-Hennessy Scholars application. The graduate program reviews your application to that program. These two reviews take place separately. After reviewing your Knight-Hennessy Scholars application, we share our review with your graduate program. That program also gives input to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program.

Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme | Apply by 3 December 2020 or 7 January 2021


The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was established in October 2000 by a donation of US$210m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge; this is the largest ever single donation to a UK university.

Each year Gates Cambridge offers c.80 full-cost scholarships to outstanding applicants from countries outside the UK to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge. Approximately two-thirds of these awards will be offered to PhD students, with approximately 25 awards available in the US round and 55 available in the International round.

The selection criteria are:

  • outstanding intellectual ability
  • reasons for choice of course
  • a commitment to improving the lives of others
  • leadership potential

There are at least 225 Scholars from c. 50 countries studying in Cambridge at any one time who pursue the full range of subjects available at the University and are spread across its departments and Colleges.

The Gates Cambridge mission is to build a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others. It aims to achieve this mission by selecting outstanding scholars, providing them with financial and non-financial support at one of the world’s leading universities and facilitating community building at and beyond Cambridge.


A Gates Cambridge Scholarship covers the full cost of studying at Cambridge. It also provides additional, discretionary funding.

Core components

  • the University Composition Fee at the appropriate rate*
  • a maintenance allowance for a single student (£17,500 for 12 months at the 2020-21 rate; pro rata for courses shorter than 12 months) – for PhD scholars the award is for up to 4 years
  • one economy single airfare at both the beginning and end of the course
  • inbound visa costs & the cost of the Immigration Health Surcharge

* The University Composition Fee varies for different types of students; applicants should see the Graduate Studies prospectus for full details about precise amounts. Where a student from the European Union has been successful in gaining a fees award from public authorities they must accept this and the Trust will not pay these fees.

Discretionary components

The Trust also considers applications for several types of additional funding on a discretionary basis:

  • Academic development funding – from up to £500 to up to £2,000, dependent on the length of your course, to attend conferences and courses.
  • Family allowance – up to £10,120 for a first child and up to £4,320 for a second child (2020-21 rate). No funding is provided for a partner.
  • Fieldwork – you may apply to keep up to your normal maintenance allowance while on fieldwork as part of your PhD (the Trust does not fund other fieldwork costs as these should be funded by the University Composition Fee).
  • Maternity/Paternity funding – should you require it, you may apply to intermit your studies for up to 6 months and continue to receive your maintenance allowance during this time
  • Hardship funding – for unforeseen difficulties

Receiving a salary or substantial other scholarship?

If you are receiving a salary from an employer or have another substantial scholarship, the Trust reserves the right to reduce or not pay the standard maintenance allowance. You should let the Trust know ASAP if you are awarded any funding towards your degree at Cambridge.

What is not covered?

Most costs are covered by the Scholarship but Gates Cambridge does not cover bench fees or the costs of scientific equipment or similar academic resources. The Trust expects such core course costs to be covered by the academic department at Cambridge.

Mahindra Humanities Center Postdoctoral Fellowships, 2021-22| Apply by 6th November, 2020


The Mahindra Humanities Center invites applications for one-year postdoctoral fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of migration and the humanities.

Migration plays as critical a role in the moral imagination of the humanities as it does in shaping the activist vision of humanitarianism and human rights. Too often, the humanities are summoned merely as witnesses whose primary aesthetic and moral values lie in their illustrative powers of empathy and evocation. Yet the intellectual formation of the humanities—their very conception of the nature of meaning, knowledge, and morals—is deeply resonant with the displacement of values and the revision of norms that shape narratives of migrant lives.

We welcome applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with migration and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic terms of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers.


Fellows will receive stipends of $65,000, medical insurance, additional research support of $2,500, and (for those not already in residence in Greater Boston) $1,500 in moving expenses. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Harvard for the term of the fellowship. 


Applicants for 2021-22 fellowships must have received a doctorate or terminal degree in or after May 2018. Applicants without a doctorate or terminal degree must demonstrate that they have completed all requirements for a terminal degree (i.e. dissertation defense) by August 1, 2021. International scholars outside the United States are appointed under either the J-1 visa (Research Scholar status) or F-1 OPT (Optional Practical Training), depending on their circumstances. If awarded a fellowship, the term of appointment for international scholars is September 1, 2021-August 31, 2022. The Mahindra Center reserves the right to cancel awards if the recipient is unable to meet these conditions of completion and visa status.

The application deadline for applicants to submit their materials is November 6, 2020. The deadline for receipt of letters of recommendation is November 20, 2020.


Please apply using our online application.

In addition to biographical and professional information, applicants are asked to submit:

  • A curriculum vitae.
  • A statement of the research project (1,000-3,000 words) that provides a detailed description of what the applicant proposes to do during the fellowship year.
  • One chapter- or article-length writing sample (no longer than 40 pages).
  • Names and contact information of three referees, who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate’s application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when three letters have been received. Recommendations may be those included in the applicant’s placement dossier, but they must specifically address the proposed research project. Letters should be uploaded to the electronic application.

Please contact Candace Kang with questions about applying for a fellowship.

6 Doctoral Research Positions in Law, Ethics and Economics for Sustainable Development (LEES)

The Universities of MilanRijeka and Maastricht are seeking six outstanding and committed students to carry out a three-year multidisciplinary research project, based at more than one participating university (see HERE the call for application and HERE the course website).

The three universities are launching LEES, a doctoral programme in International and Public Law, Ethics and Economics for Sustainable Development. With courses, seminars, and scientific research activities entirely in English, it addresses the complexities involved in sustainable development, and uses an innovative multidisciplinary approach that combines the contributions of law, ethics, and economics. The broad interdisciplinary view that inspires the PhD programme is here attached.

The programme is managed by a highly qualified international doctoral board and an international scientific council composed by top scholars in the relevant fields of law, ethics, and economics, which will advise the board on the development of research lines and the programme of the yearly international workshops and summer schools.

The first year of the programme will be based in Milan, where the PhD students will attend courses and seminars, and participate in the activities and events of the academic community of the Department. Some restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic may still apply to the 2020-2021 academic year. The University of Milan is poised to provide both online and in-person lectures as well as meetings for small groups.

To enable their participation in the joint project, students will have access to additional funding and will have the opportunity to carry out part of their research either in one of the other associate universities – Rijeka or Maastricht – or in another partner university (see full list attached) depending on the project and the agreements which will be set up.

Candidates must have the preparation and the ability to pursue innovative results at the frontiers of research, where unsolved problems call for interdisciplinary approaches and contributions, and submit a project in line with at least one of the many proposed lines of research. The many issues brought to the fore by the COVID-19 crisis, which touch on health, environmental, social, and economic dimensions, serve to confirm the pressing need for an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to sustainable development, in line with LEES research. 

LEES lines of research focus on, in particular: re-thinking legal, ethical, and economic approaches to sustainability; social justice and theories of justice; environmental issues; public options for sustainable development; governance of the common sphere; corporate social responsibility; innovation technologies; and human rights (FULL LIST HERE).
