“Each year the applicants for the Beckman Scholars Program put forth outstanding proposals for unique and engaging research programs. Our 2024 awardee institutions were remarkable among that competitive group,” shared Dr. Anne Hultgren, Executive Director of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. “We look forward to meeting the newest cohort of Beckman Scholars – a diverse and talented group of undergraduate researchers – and welcoming them to our upcoming annual Beckman Symposium where we’ll have the opportunity to learn about their research projects.”

The Beckman Scholars Program is a 15-month mentored research experience for exceptional undergraduate students in chemistry, biological sciences, and interdisciplinary combinations thereof.
