Beckman Scholars Program awards are institutional, university or college awards. Each year, the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation selects a number of research, doctoral, masters and baccalaureate universities and colleges to be invited to submit applications for the Beckman Scholars Program. Each institution may submit one application for consideration for an award. If an institution is interested in the Beckman Scholars Program, but has not been invited to participate, please review the following guidelines for eligibility.

Invitations are extended to universities and colleges based on the following factors:

  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Support
  • NIH Academic Research Enhancement Awards
  • National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Awards
  • Various NSF Undergraduate Research Awards
  • Howard Hughes Medical Institute Undergraduate Grants
  • Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation grants
  • Research Corporation Cottrell College Science Awards
  • American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund Awards
  • Active chemistry and biological sciences participation at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research annual meetings (NCUR)

The Beckman Scholars Program is not awarded directly to individuals. It is an institutional award program. If you are an undergraduate student in the area of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, or other science program, contact your institution for more information.
