Graduate Fellows Program

Applications for the 2019 Beckman Graduate Fellows Programs are no longer being accepted. The application period ended at 5:00 PM Central Time on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

The Beckman Institute 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.
