Duke University junior Ashlyn Nuckols is among 20 students nationwide selected as 2017 Beinecke Scholars.

The Beinecke Scholarship supports students of exceptional promise as they attend the graduate school of their choice. Beinecke recipients receive $4,000 in their senior year of undergraduate studies and $30,000 during graduate school. A student must apply as a junior, demonstrate financial need and plan to study arts, humanities or social sciences. 

Nuckols, from Essex, Vermont, studies cultural anthropology, with a minor in political science.

She has worked with the Samuel Dubois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke, producing a documentary exhibit titled “Trying to Get By: (Not) Making Ends Meet in Our Low Wage Economy” that was presented at the 2015 Oral History Association Conference.
