“Since the inception of the Beckman Scholars Program in 1978, there have been more than $29 million in awards to over 1,400 undergraduate students through this program, providing each student with a unique 15-month mentored research experience,” shared Dr. Anne Hultgren, Executive Director of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. “We’re excited to learn more about the next cohort of Scholars and see them present their early research findings at our upcoming annual Beckman Symposium.”
