The program offers University of Illinois graduate students at the M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. level the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary research at the Beckman Institute. The program is supported by funding from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation.
Proposed research projects must involve active participation by at least two University of Illinois faculty members, with at least one being a Beckman Institute faculty member. Proposals involving more than one Beckman faculty member, in particular those involving faculty from different research groups, will be given preference. Proposed research must be performed mainly in the Beckman Institute. Applications will be evaluated in terms of quality of proposed work, likelihood that work will lead to important new results in science and engineering, and relevance of proposed project to Beckman Institute research.
Applications must be submitted no later than Monday, February 24, 2014. Announcement of the 2014 Beckman Institute Graduate Fellows will be made on or about Monday, April 28, 2014.
