The Beckman Young Investigators program is seeking applicants for grants designed to promote research in chemistry and the life sciences and to foster the invention of methods, instruments and material that will open up new avenues of research in science.
The program is open to U.S. nonprofit research institutions, with grants normally ranging from $100,000 to $200,000 over one to three years. The Foundation does not provide funds for overhead or for indirect costs.
The program is open to persons with tenure-track appointments in academic and non-profit institutions that conduct fundamental research in the chemical and life sciences. The program is intended primarily for institutions in the United States.
To be eligible, an applicant should not have completed more than three full years in his or her tenure-track or other comparable independent research appointment on the anniversary date of initial appointment in the year in which application is to be made.
Regardless of eligibility under this rule, no individual may apply for a Beckman Young Investigator award more than three tunes.
Complete applications are to be submitted to Richard Lolley, associate dean for research, KAM 110, on or before Sept. 1, 1998. Late applications will not be reviewed. Applications will be returned by Sept. 14.
Notifications of awards are typically made in the spring. The first-year grant period begins on or about July 1, 1999. For more information, contact the Office of Development at 442-2358 or visit the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation homepage at www.beckman-foundation.com.
