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.
The Swiss Benevolent Society awards scholarships and grants on the basis of need and merit for education above the high school level. Applicant or one of his/her parents must be a Swiss national. There are awards both for study in the US and for study abroad in Switzerland.
