The Beinecke Scholarship Program: Juniors Who Want A Ph.D.

The Beinecke Scholarship Program provides graduate study scholarships in the arts, humanities, and social sciences to JUNIORS of exceptional ability who have a high degree of financial need.

The Beinecke 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 2014 and August 2015.

FIELDS OF STUDY:
The Beinecke program is open to students planning research-oriented Masters and Ph.D. studies in any field in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. Professionally-oriented degree programs of any kind 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 nomination by the University of Maryland should be recipients of Pell Grants or be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of underlying financial need.

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 24, 2014.

INFORMATION SESSIONS: Learn more about the Beinecke program by attending an information workshop at the National Scholarships Office.  Please RSVP to lbrice@umd.edu for the session you plan to attend – if you are interested but cannot attend, please write us at the same address.
