Funded by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, the Beckman Scholars Program seeks to stimulate, encourage, and support research activities by exceptionally talented, full-time undergraduate students at four-year institutions. Research activities center on chemistry, biochemistry, the biological and medical sciences, or an interdisciplinary combination of these fields.

The research activities performed by Beckman Scholars will be conducted under the guidance of a selected full-time faculty member. Fourteen faculty members have volunteered as mentors for the Beckman Scholars Program.

The term of Beckman Scholars is 15 months beginning with a full-time summer research experience (40 hours over 10 weeks), followed by an academic year (10 hours per week), and another full-time summer experience.
