Beinecke Scholarship for juniors planning for graduate study in Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences

Scholarship opportunity available for undergraduates planning ahead for graduate studies in arts, humanities and social science fields. The Beinecke Scholarship hopes to reduce financial barriers to graduate study for academically strong "juniors" (i.e. those planning graduation between December 2019 and August 2020). Freshmen and sophomores may also appreciate learning about this opportunity now for application in future years. Eligibility details are included below.

Beinecke Scholarship for juniors in arts, humanities & social science fields

The Beinecke Scholarship 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. The scholarship provides $34,000 for a research-focused master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences to juniors (based on graduation date) of exceptional ability, achievement, and who have financial need.

Students must be nominated to compete for this scholarship, and the UW is able to nominate one student per year to compete for this national award. Students from all 3 campuses are welcome to apply for nomination.

If you are considering graduate studies in an arts, humanities or social science field, have a passion for that field, and financial need, consider applying! Each 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.

UW application deadline: Jan. 8, 2019, 11:59pm

UW application and nomination information:

UW online application:


To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:

· Have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise during their undergraduate career.

· Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree during the 2018-2019 academic year. "Junior" means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2019 and August 2020.

· Plan to enter a research-focused master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Students in the social sciences who plan to pursue graduate study in neuroscience should not apply for a Beinecke Scholarship. Also, students who plan to pursue professional school programs that emphasize skills and practical analysis over theory and research (such as law, business, education, architecture, journalism, clinical psychology, social work, etc.), are not competitive for selection at the national level.

· Be a United States citizen, or a United States national from American Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

· Have a documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during their undergraduate years. Primary evidence of meeting this criterion is a student’s history of receiving need-based institutional, state or federal grants-in-aid. An institutional financial aid officer will be required to complete a Financial Data Sheet certifying that the student meets this criterion. During the selection process, the amount of financial need will be one of the factors considered with preference being given to candidates for whom the awarding of a scholarship would significantly increase the likelihood of the student’s being able to attend graduate school.

Information Sessions:

To learn more about this opportunity and the UW application and nomination process, please attend a Beinecke Scholarship Information Session:

· Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, 12:30pm, MGH 136

· Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, 5:30-6:30pm, online via Zoom

· Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018, 4:30pm, MGH 136

· RSVP to attend at, though drop-ins are always welcome.

Winter and Spring 2019 English Department courses for future teachers

The English Department offers courses each quarter of interest to students considering careers in teaching and related fields. English 471: The Theory and Practice of Teaching Writing, will be offered next in Winter 2019, and the Community Literacy Program (English 298/498/491) will be offered in Spring 2019.

These courses fulfill a range of UW requirements, as well as requirements for the ELS Minor and for application to Masters in Teaching/Teacher Education programs. These courses all offer students the opportunity to put on-campus learning into practice through service-learning internships in our partner "high needs" public school programs.

Winter 2019: English471: The Theory and Practice of Teaching Writing (TuTh 1:30-3:20) VLPA; W option). In Winter 2019, English 471 will be taught by Mandy Macklin. English 471 reviews the research in composition studies, and the core debates and politics that have shaped the practice, teaching, and study of writing. The course will also examine the assumptions that guide varied approaches, and consideration of whose interests they serve, so that all members of the class can become more self-reflective readers, writers, and teachers. Coursework will include keeping a reading journal, conducting a brief teaching ethnography, preparing a bibliography and curriculum design presentation, and creating a teaching portfolio.

English 471 will have an optional service-learning internship component through which students work in a local K-12 classroom (three to four hours each week) as tutors, mentors, and writing coaches. Those who opt to do service learning will also have the option to register for additional credit hours of English 491 if they choose. For those who participate, the service learning in this course will fulfill 30-40 of the observation hours required for application to the Masters in Teaching/Teacher Education programs. Add codes will be available for English 491 during the first week of classes. For more information about service-learning in English 471 contact the English Department’s service-learning coordinator, Prof. Elizabeth Simmons-O’Neill, esoneill.

Spring 2019: Community Literacy Program (MW 10:30-12:20; C or W; capstone for English majors). In Spring 2019, the Community Literacy Program will be taught by CLP director Elizabeth Simmons-O’Neill. Community Literacy Program links a 5 credit on-campus seminar (English 298 or 498) with service-learning internships in our "high needs" partner public school programs (English 491). Assignments include a service-learning journal, short writing about course texts and themes, a collaborative presentation about students’ shared work in a partner school, and an individually designed research project, for which research instruction is provided. The instructor meets with students to discuss drafts and revisions of their major projects. Central course goals include testing theory in practice, engaging in effective, reflective work with public school students and teachers, and learning more about both our own writing and learning processes, and the impact of CLP on our academic, career, civic and personal goals.

Community Literacy Program provides a capstone opportunity for English Majors, and an opportunity for students from other majors and at all stages of their UW careers to complete "C" and "W" requirements. CLP is also a great way for students considering teaching careers to get crucial school-based experience in "high needs" schools, and the hours completed may be used toward the field work requirement in the Education, Learning and Society minor, as well as observation hours required for application to the UW Masters in Teaching Program. There are no prerequisites. Add codes (all periods) will be available from the instructor beginning in February: esoneill.

Feel free to be in touch with questions related to these courses, or to the English Department’s public school service-learning partnerships.

Associate Director, Expository Writing Program

5 spaces available in Cross-Cultural Religious Literacy

There are 5 spaces open in JSIS 578 A: Cross-Cultural Religious Literacy with Chris Seiple. This course meets on Mondays in winter 2019 from 11:30a-1:20p.

Finding solutions to global challenges demands different perspectives, as well as partnerships among individuals and institutions who do not share the same values. How does one build unity without uniformity across sectors—each of which possess believers and faith-based actors—in order to effectively lead in complicated times? Through theory, case study and the practical experience of both the instructor and the students, this course understands and wrestles with the role of religion in context—at least as an underexamined analytic factor, and perhaps even as tremendous force for the common good – and seeks to teach the skill sets of evaluation (self & contextual), communication, and negotiation as a means to mutual literacy and respect across cultures and countries.
