Applications are due: December 1, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST

Award range: $57,000–$67,000, per year (up to three years)

The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award program, which began in 2015, is intended to support postdoctoral scholars who are judged to have the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and who will become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology. It is the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation’s intent that this fellowship will be the catalyst to aid in the fellows transition to an outstanding, independent research career.

The foundation anticipates granting 20 fellowships for the 2016 program year. Fellows will be appointed for two years, with possibility for renewal for a third year. Fellows may begin as early as August of their application year, and no later than December 31. The award amount will range from $57,000–$67,000 based upon years of postdoctoral research experience.
