Program Description:
The Beinecke Scholarships provide funding for graduate study in the arts, humanities, or social sciences, either in the U.S. or overseas.  Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school.  Recipients are allowed to supplement the award with other scholarships, assistantships, and research grants.  Scholars are encouraged to begin graduated study as soon as possible following graduation from college, and must utilize all of the funding within five years of completion of their undergraduate studies.

To be eligible for a Beinecke Scholarship, a student must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen or a U.S. national from American Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands;
  • Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree—”junior” means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2016 and August 2017;
  • Have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement, and personal promise during his or her undergraduate career;
  • Plan to enter a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities, or social sciences—students planning graduate study in neuroscience are excluded; and
  • Have a documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during his or her undergraduate years.
University nomination: Columbia University may nominate one undergraduate for consideration each year.  Students in Columbia College, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of General Studies who will be current juniors at the time of application are eligible.  Please note:  the internal campus competition places students into consideration for nomination.  Students may not apply directly to this program.
