*Scholarship & Application Benefits:*

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! In addition to being considered for the scholarship,
you can use this scholarship application process as a helpful way to get
well ahead of the game in preparing for grad school apps!

The financial benefits the scholarship provides include:

   $5,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and

   $30,000 while attending graduate school.

The scholarship can be used at any accredited school in the US or
abroad, 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 their
undergraduate career.
* Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor's degree during the
2022-2023 academic year. "Junior" means a student who plans to
continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a
baccalaureate degree between December 2023 and August 2024.
* Plan to enter *a research-focused master's or doctoral program in
the arts, humanities or social sciences*.
o /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 professional
school programs that emphasize skills and practical analysis
over theory and research (such as law, business, education,
architecture, journalism, clinical psychology, social work,
etc.), are not competitive for selection at the national level./
* 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 their undergraduate years, with a preference for Pell Grant
recipients. Other 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.
