Beckman Scholars

The College of Arts and Sciences’ (CAS) Division of Science and Math Program has been selected as a 2024 Beckman Scholars Program awardee.

The Beckman Scholars Program is a 15-month mentorship research program for exceptional undergraduate students in chemistry, biological sciences or related interdisciplinary combinations. The program application is by invitation only.

It issues awards to institutions that span three years and gives institutions support for six scholar-mentor pairs – two for each year of the award. Scholar-mentor pairs receive $26,000 in funding – $21,000 per student and $5,000 per faculty mentor. Two scholars from UDC will be chosen.

Three academic units – CAS, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and UDC’s Community College – will be involved and provide mentors for UDC Beckman Scholars.

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation incorporates the principles of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) into its operations and culture.

The foundation identifies colleges and universities that will receive Beckman Scholars Program application invitations. The selection process is extremely thorough. It is a two-part review led by a panel of scientific experts with institutions chosen based on their dedication to undergraduate research in chemistry, biology and/or combinations thereof and their ability to compete in national-level programs.
