The Tufts University Beckman Scholars is a program funded by a competitive award from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation through the Beckman Scholars Program.  It provides scholarships that advance the education, research training and professional development of selected students in chemical and biological sciences.  The program provides sustained, in-depth undergraduate research experiences and comprehensive faculty mentoring that are unique in scope, content and level of scholarship awards.

For more information, see Program Details.  You can also watch videos of the scholars describing their experiences as independent researchers!

You can see the list of Tufts University Beckman Mentors, and meet our talented Tufts Beckman Scholars.
