Beinecke Scholarship for juniors!

The Beinecke Scholarship awards $34,000 toward graduate study to juniors eligible for need-based financial aid who are planning to pursue a research-focused master’s or doctoral degree in the social sciences, humanities, or the arts, with a strong preference for Pell Grant recipients.


In recognition of the need for funds to cover moving costs, recipients receive $4,000 the summer before they commence their graduate studies, and a total additional $30,000 to support their graduate study.


Three faculty recommendations are required, and potential applicants are invited to schedule an appointment with me to discuss this opportunity at


Penn’s application deadline for the Beinecke Scholarship is Monday, December 12, at 4:00pm.
