Now that the mad rush of fellowships in the fall has past, I want to throw the spotlight on the upcoming opportunities in December/January.  So let’s start with the Beinecke!

The Beinecke provides $34,000 in funding toward graduate study (MA and PhD programs) in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

Who can apply? JUNIORS (that means you expect to receive your degree between December 2010 and August 2011) who are:

  • US Citizens
  • Have history of receiving need-based financial aid as undergraduates
  • Have record of academic achievement (3.7 or higher)

You may defer graduate study for one year following Middlebury graduation. Funding can be used to support graduate study at non-US institutions as well as US institutions.

How to apply? You must first be nominated by Middlebury.  To apply for nomination,  the following materials are due to me in Adirondack House 202 by noon on Monday, January 11, 2009:

  • A statement of 1,000 words or less describing your background, interests, plans for graduate study, and career aspirations.  Discuss experiences and ideas that have shaped these plans.
  • A current résumé.
  • A Banner Degree Progress Report
  • Optional:  an additional statement (a paragraph or two) concerning your financial situation and any significance it may have on your graduate-school plans.
  • You can find more information online at go/sfas and www.BeineckeScholarship.org .  If you’re interested, talk with me this semester!
