Sixteen Stanford graduate students are among this year’s recipients of the Siebel Scholars award. The scholarship is awarded annually by the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation in Redwood City.

Now in its 19th year, the award this year recognizes 93 exceptional graduate students at leading schools of business, computer science, bioengineering and energy science. Deans at each school select the scholars based on outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated leadership.
