Beinecke Scholarship – $34,000 for juniors planning for graduate study in Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences

Attention Juniors!!!

Beinecke Scholarship for juniors in arts, humanities & social science fields

UW application deadline: Jan. 11, 2016, 11:59pm

UW application information and online application form are available at: http://expd.washington.edu/scholarships/search/search-results.html?page_stub=beinecke

The Beinecke Scholarship provides $34,000 for graduate study in arts, humanities and social science fields to juniors (based on graduation date) of exceptional ability, achievement, and who have financial need. Students must be nominated to compete for this scholarship, and the UW is allowed to nominate one student per year to compete for this national award. Students from all 3 campuses are welcome to apply for nomination.

If you are considering graduate studies in an arts, humanities or social science field, have a passion for that field, and financial need, consider applying! The Beinecke Scholarship program seeks to encourage and enable highly motivated students to pursue opportunities available to them and to be courageous in the selection of a graduate course of study. Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school. There are no geographic restrictions on the use of the scholarship, and recipients are allowed to supplement the award with other scholarships, assistantships and research grants.


To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:

* Have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise during his or her undergraduate career.

* Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree during the 2015-2016 academic year. "Junior" means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2016 and August 2017.

* Plan to enter a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Please note some exceptions the Beinecke Foundation makes in fields of study: Students in the social sciences who plan to pursue graduate study in neuroscience should not apply for a Beinecke Scholarship. Also, students who plan to pursue graduate study in professional programs (law school, business school, education, architecture, journalism, etc.) should not apply.

* Be a United States citizen; OR a United States national from American Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

* Have a documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during his or her undergraduate years. Primary evidence of meeting this criterion is a student’s history of receiving need-based institutional, state or federal grants-in-aid. An institutional financial aid officer will be required to complete a Financial Data Sheet certifying that the student meets this criterion. During the selection process, the amount of financial need will be one of the factors considered with preference being given to candidates for whom the awarding of a scholarship would significantly increase the likelihood of the student’s being able to attend graduate school.

Information Sessions:
