Graduate Fellows Program

Applications for the Year 2016 Beckman Graduate Fellows Program are no longer being accepted. The application period ended at midnight Central Time on Monday, February 22, 2016.

The Beckman Graduate Fellows Program, supported by funding from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, offers University of Illinois graduate students at the M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. level the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary research at the Institute.

Research projects must involve at least one Beckman faculty member who carries out their research at Beckman in addition to a second U of I faculty member, and preference is given to those proposals that are interdisciplinary and involve the active participation of two Beckman faculty members from two different groups.
