The Beinecke Scholarship

The Beinecke Scholarship
The Beinecke Scholarship is a prestigious graduate school scholarship for current college juniors who plan to pursue a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Applicants must demonstrate need-based financial aid.

Eligible students must be academically outstanding and demonstrate a strong commitment to pursue an advanced degree. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage high-performing students to pursue careers in the arts, humanities or social sciences.

To apply, students must include an application, resume, a cover letter that explains in no more than 1,000 words the student's academic and career interests and goals. Students must be nominated by the dean of the college and also submit three letters of recommendation. Over 120 U.S. colleges and universities are eligible to nominate a student for a Beinecke Scholarship.

The Beinecke Scholarship was established in 1971 and named after William Sperry Beinecke, who served as a lawyer at the Sperry and Hutchinson Company from 1952 to 1980. He formed the Sperry Foundation which funds the scholarship.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $34,000 - $60,000.
