The Beinecke Scholarship Program was established in 1971 to honor Edwin, Frederick, and Walter Beinecke, three brothers from New York City who in the 1920s guided the Sperry and Hutchinson Company from a small enter¬prise to a multi-million dollar company with a legacy of supporting charitable and educational institutions. The 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.
Each Beinecke scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school. 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. Scholars are encouraged to begin graduate study as soon as possible fol¬lowing graduation from college, and must utilize all of the funding within five years of completion of undergraduate studies.
