Each year the Beinecke Scholarship offers 20 scholarships to undergraduates who intend to pursue a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Applicants must be nominated by their universities to compete for this national program, and UW is able to nominate one student in their junior year each year. Selected students receive $30,000 to be used for graduate study and $4,000 in their senior year.
