Beinecke Scholarship for Graduate Study in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
The Beinecke Scholarship Program has invited Hunter College to nominate one student for a $34,000 scholarship to use towards a master's or doctoral degree in the arts, humanities and social sciences. (Doctoral degrees are preferred and professional school programs are not favored by the Beinecke selection committee, which prefers programs emphasizing theory and research.)
The competition is open to juniors, students who expect to receive a baccalaureate degree between January 2017 and August 2017. Demonstrated academic achievement, US citizenship, financial need and a history of being eligible for financial aid are among the criteria.
How to Apply:
Interested students should indicate their interest by completing a profile form with the Office of Prestigious Scholarships and then contact Myrna Fader, firstname.lastname@example.org. A Hunter College faculty committee will review all applications and select the one to be forwarded to the Beinecke program for their consideration.
Deadline: Tuesday, December 1
