Undergraduate & Youth Opportunities
The School of Medicine sponsors a number of programs to introduce undergraduate and high school students from underrepresented backgrounds to careers in medicine and basic science research.
The Knight-Hennessy Scholars (http://kh.stanford.edu) program cultivates a diverse, multidisciplinary community of emerging leaders from around the world and guides them to collaborate, innovate, and communicate as they prepare to address the complex challenges facing society.
Knight-Hennessy Scholars become part of a supportive family of fellow scholars. Through the King Global Leadership Program, scholars will broaden knowledge, develop skills, and strengthen character; this platform provides a collection of community experiences, workshops, meetings with leaders, domestic and global study trips, and personal development opportunities. Knight-Hennessy Scholars also receive funding for graduate study at Stanford University.
