ORD and CFR Foundation Information Session: Beckman Young Investigator Award Program

Are you a young investigator conducting research related to chemistry and life sciences? Join us on January 24 to learn more about the Beckman Young Investigator Program!

The Arnold & Mabel Beckman Foundation’s Beckman Young Investigators Program (BYI) provides research support to the most promising young faculty members in the early stages of their academic careers in the chemical and life sciences. The program is particularly committed to fostering the invention of methods, instruments, and materials that will open up new avenues of research in the sciences.

The BYI program is open to those faculty within the first three years of a tenure-track position; for the 2019 Program, tenure track start date must be after 8/14/2015. The 2019 competition will be held in summer 2018.

Projects are normally funded for a period of four years and grants are in the range of $600,000 over the term of the project (no indirect costs allowed). Projects should be truly innovative, high-risk and show promising advances in chemistry and the life sciences. The Foundation accepts applications from investigators in a broad range of disciplines, as long as the research proposed will advance chemistry and the life sciences.

Eligible and interested faculty should join the Offices of Research Development and Corporate and Foundation Relations for an information session on this program on January 24, 2018 from 3:00-4:00pm in Room 238 in the Strom Thurmond Institute.
