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 $21,000 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.
