Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

AG Bell  offers several scholarships for full-time students who have a pre-lingual bilateral hearing loss in the moderately-severe to profound range, use listening and spoken language, and who are pursuing a bachelors, masters or doctorate (not law or public policy) degree at an accredited mainstream college or university. This is a merit-based scholarship program and award selection is extremely competitive

Beinecke Scholarship

The Beinecke Scholarship 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 in the arts, humanities and social sciences.  It is awarded annually to juniors who demonstrate both some form of financial need (no matter how small) and a clear interest in continuing their studies at the graduate level.  This scholarship is intended only for students who wish to pursue the MA or Ph.D., and therefore is not open to those who wish to apply to Law, Medical, or Business School.

Freeman Awards for Study in Asia

Freeman-ASIA (Freeman Awards for Study in Asia) is designed to support American undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia. The program’s goal is to increase the number of Americans with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures. Award recipients are required to share their experiences with their home campuses or communities to encourage study abroad by others and fulfill the program’s goal of increasing understanding of Asia in the United States. From 2001 to 2009, Freeman-ASIA supported over 4,000 U.S. undergraduates from more than 600 institutions with their study abroad plans in East and Southeast Asia. With generous funding from the Freeman Foundation, the Institute of International Education (IIE) will re-launch the Freeman-ASIA Program for two academic years, beginning in Summer 2011.
