If you are a high-achieving junior and are planning to attend graduate school after graduation, but have concerns about being able to afford it, consider applying for the Beinecke Scholarship. The National and International Scholarships Program has planned two sessions to assist students towards earning this $34,000 award. On Thursday, October 31, we will be conducting an informational session, including a question and answer period with an Illini recipient, from 3:30-4:30 in IUB room 514 and on November 1, a Beinecke workshop from 3:00-4:00 in IUB room 514 to help students get started on their actual applications. The Beinecke Foundation is looking for students who have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement, and personal promise during their undergraduate years. The program seeks to encourage and enable highly motivated U.S. citizen juniors to pursue graduate studies in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school. Preference is given to candidates for whom the awarding of significant financial aid would increase the likelihood of the student's being able to attend graduate school.
