S. colleges and universities affiliated with Advanced Studies in England (ASE), an undergraduate humanities program based in the city of Bath that offers qualified students a one- or two-semester or a summer experience. Students live in Georgian townhouses near the city center. The seminar-sized classes taught by British faculty often include study trips designed to deepen the students’ understanding of the particular curricular subjects and English culture. ASE is formally associated with University College, Oxford University where students study for a 9-day residency each semester.  Students also spend a week each semester in Stratford-upon-Avon while attending the Royal Shakespeare Company productions.

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.

City Year

City Year partners with public schools in high-poverty communities to help bridge the gap between what students need and what schools are designed to provide.  City Year corps members provide 11 months of full-time service as tutors, mentors, and role models to help children stay in school and on track and transform schools and communities across the United States. Just as important, during their year of service, corps members develop civic leadership skills they can use throughout a lifetime of community service.  City Year corps members are as diverse a group as the communities they serve.
