Building upon the deep domain expertise that Knight-Hennessy Scholars develop in their home departments, scholars gain exposure to a wide range of disciplines and cultures in the Knight-Hennessy community, and participate in the King Global Leadership Program (KGLP), which is designed to develop transformational leadership capabilities. Within KGLP, scholars collaborate and begin to address important challenges facing the world, such as climate change, healthcare inequity, the future of education, and criminal justice reform.Funding: As a Knight-Hennessy Scholar, you receive funding for up to three years for any graduate degree(s) at Stanford to which you are admitted at the time you are selected as a scholar.After enrolling at Stanford, if you wish to enroll in an additional graduate program, you may apply to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program to receive additional funding up to the maximum of three years. This additional funding is not guaranteed.If a degree program exceeds three years — such as an MD or PhD program, or a Stanford dual- or joint-degree program — then your Stanford home department(s) will often fund the remainder of your education to the extent consistent with its standard funding commitment for that program. This standard funding commitment varies by department and school. Please contact the graduate program with specific questions about those commitments.During each of the first three years of graduate study, Knight-Hennessy Scholars receive:a fellowship applied directly to cover tuition and associated feesa stipend for living and academic expenses (such as room and board, books, academic supplies, instructional materials, local transportation, and reasonable personal expenses)a travel grant intended to cover an economy-class ticket for one annual trip to and from StanfordNOTE: Knight-Hennessy Scholars also may access supplemental funds to support academic enrichment (e.g., conference travel).

PHD STIPENDS IN 6G AND OTHER POST-5G COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
As the 5G wireless communication systems are being rolled out, there is a significant research momentum on post-5G wireless communication systems. Specifically, a number of research activities are directed towards the potential 6G standard that will emerge during the next decade.Our research group considers the following three premises towards 6G systems:(1) Increase in the number and heterogeneity of connections requires new concepts for sustainable spectrum usage.(2) The wireless infrastructure will evolve towards disaggregation, with increasing fraction of general- purpose hardware that is configurable in software.(3) A growing number of industries and services will require reliable, resilient, and predictable wireless connectivity. Methodologically, the research on post-5G wireless systems will deviate from the traditional communication engineering to embrace methods and techniques from sensing, inference, machine learning, positioning, network economics, metamaterials and quantum communication.In this context, multiple PhD positions will be opened within the area of post-5G and 6G communication systems. The selected candidates will work with at least one of the following topics:- Radio access protocol and spectrum allocation for IoT (Internet of Things) connections with heterogeneous requirements in terms of reliability, latency, rate and number of connections;- Communication techniques for integration of terrestrial and satellite systems;- Integration of communication with distributed machine learning and inference;- Use of machine learning methods to design and optimize communication protocols;- Joint optimization of communication, localization, and sensing;- Modelling and performance optimization of semantics-oriented communication systems;- Communication models for IoT systems with distributed ledgers and blockchains;- Communication models that cater for the electromagnetic properties of metamaterials;- Communication models that integrate classical and quantum communication systems.The PhD positions are opened within the Connectivity Section at the Department of Electronic Systems, Aalborg University. The Connectivity Section carries out research in the broad area of communication engineering and networking, with special focus on communication theory and wireless systems. Some positions will be established within a Villum Investigator Grant, while others within industrial collaboration projects and EU projects.
