Beinecke Scholarship for Graduate Studies in the Arts, Humanities,or Social Sciences

The Beinecke Scholarship Program seeks highly motivated and intellectually accomplished JUNIORS who plan to pursue graduate studies toward the Ph.D. in the arts, humanities, and social sciences after graduation. "Junior" means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2012 and August 2013.

FIELDS OF STUDY: The Beinecke program is open to students planning research-oriented Masters and Ph.D. studies in any fields in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. However, professionally-oriented degree programs in these fields are not supported.

FINANCIAL NEED: The Beinecke program seeks candidates who have a documented history of receiving significant need-based financial aid as an undergraduate.

Candidates for the Beinecke Scholarship must be nominated by their university or college - the University of Maryland, College Park can nominate 1 outstanding junior annually to compete for a Beinecke Scholarship. To seek nomination, candidates must submit a complete draft of a Beinecke Scholarship application by January 27, 2012.
