UNL was one of 10 U.S. institutions selected for the prestigious Beckman Scholars Program in 2013. The $115,000 award provides interdisciplinary fellowships to undergraduates conducting research in chemical and biological sciences alongside faculty mentors. The four students selected as the first UNL Beckman Scholars are part of an elite Beckman Scholars Community in which all scholars live in the same residence hall, participate in specialized events with high-achieving students from other disciplines, take part in leadership and professional development programs, and receive individualized support for graduate school applications. Each student’s goal is to have his or her work published in a peer-reviewed journal.
