Beckman Scholars Program

Overview and Introduction

The U-M Beckman Scholars Program is a 15-month mentored research experience for exceptional transfer students who intend to graduate with honors in Chemistry or Biology. We are looking for students who intend to pursue graduate studies and a research career in one of these fields or biomedical sciences. Beckman Scholars will be matched with top faculty researchers in Chemistry or Biology and will receive a student stipend of $18,200, a student scientific supply and travel stipend of $2,800, and a $5,000 stipend for the student's mentor. This is to support their research over two summers plus one academic year (fall and winter semesters). Scholars will participate in supplemental professional development opportunities and receive one-on-one coaching to support their applications to graduate programs and major funding opportunities such as the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the Arnold & Mabel Beckman Foundation.

Campus Application Deadline: March 2025 TBD
