Beinecke Scholarship Program Open to Juniors
Middlebury Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2013
The Beinecke Scholarship provides substantial scholarships for graduate study for students of exceptional promise. The 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 in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
Approximately 100 highly selective colleges and universities are each invited to nominate one candidate. 20 Beinecke Scholarships will be granted in 2013. Middlebury is invited to nominate one junior for this award. The final deadline is February 22, 2013.
Eligibility: Juniors [expecting to receive the BA between December 2013 and August 2014] who represent “superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement, and personal promise during their undergraduate careers.” Must have documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during undergraduate years and be a U.S. citizen; must plan to enter a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities, or social sciences (excluding neuroscience). Level of need will be a consideration at both the nomination and final selection stages of the process.
