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. On Friday, October 30th from 3:00-4:00 we will be presenting a hands-on workshop to assist in crafting your materials for the award. 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.
