The Beckman Scholars Program at FLC

Beckman Scholars Program logo

In 2022, Fort Lewis College was one of 14 institutions in the country to receive a Beckman Scholars Award. The Award is funded by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. The Beckman Scholars Program aims to provide an in-depth, sustained undergraduate research experience for interested, full-time undergraduate students at accredited U.S. four-year colleges and universities, especially those who might not otherwise qualify for this type of opportunity.

The Program’s generous financial support for a student and mentor over two consecutive summers and one academic year, along with travel to the Annual Beckman Symposium, offers a unique and academically stimulating educational experience.

Application deadline: March 1, 2024
