The Beinecke Scholarship provides $34,000 for graduate study in arts, humanities and social science fields to third-year students (based on graduation date) of exceptional ability, achievement, and who have financial need. Students must be nominated to compete for this scholarship, and Hampshire College is allowed to nominate one student per year to compete for this national award.
If you are considering graduate studies in an arts, humanities, or social science field, have a passion for that field, and financial need, consider applying! The Beinecke Scholarship program seeks to encourage and enable highly motivated students to pursue opportunities available to them and to be courageous in the selection of a graduate course of study. Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school. There are no geographic restrictions on the use of the scholarship, and recipients are allowed to supplement the award with other scholarships, assistantships, and research grants.
Interested students must send the following materials via email to the campus liaison (Rachel Rubinstein, Dean of Advising and Academic Support, at rrHACU@hampshire.edu) by December 9, 2016:
