Beckman Scholars receive $16,000 for research in Biology, Chemistry or Physics & Astronomy with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research for two summers ($6,000/summer) and one academic year ($4,000). In addition, each scholar receives funds to travel to scientific meetings and funds for research supplies (up to $3,300). Beckman Scholars and their mentors agree to submit research progress reports as required by the Beckman Foundation. Students cannot apply to become Beckman Scholars but instead are nominated by their faculty research advisors and selected by a faculty committee.
