Beinecke Scholars receive a total of $34,000 in support of full-time graduate study in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Students of promise with demonstrated financial need apply during their junior year and will receive the funding upon commencing their graduate study. 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. With this program, the Beinecke 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.


Applicants must have demonstrated intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise during their undergraduate career, be a college junior pursuing a bachelor's degree at the time of application, be a U.S. citizen, and have a documented history of receiving need-based institutional, state, or federal grants-in-aid during college.

Selection Criteria

Reed's Fellowships and Awards Committee will review applications based on the strength of the essay, two letters of support, and financial need, and will nominate one candidate to compete for the Beinecke award at the national level. The Beinecke Scholarship Program will select 20 scholars annually.

Application Procedure

The committee, working with the registrar and director of financial aid, sends a notice to those students who meet the eligibility requirements. Prospective applicants can find the internal application instructions on our website.
Please contact CLBR with any questions.
