Beinecke Brothers Memorial Scholarship


Students of superior scholarship who plan to attend graduate school in the arts, humanities, or social sciences are eligible. Candidates must have a history of need-based financial aid, and preference is given to those for whom the awarding of a scholarship would increase the likelihood of being able to attend graduate school. Northwestern may nominate one junior for the Beinecke Brothers Memorial Scholarship. Since no interviews are held for this scholarship competition, students who are studying abroad or away from campus on internships during their junior year may submit applications by e-mail to the scholarship coordinator.
