Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA, be pre-med, and apply at the end
of their junior year for support in their senior year. The donors of the
scholarship have required that each applicant submit a letter along with
the application form stating "the circumstances for requesting aid."
This is a need-based scholarship, so you have to be certified by Student
Financial Affairs as having "unmet need" for next year. Minimum grants
are $500.00. Maximum are $1000.00. The amount awarded will be based on
the amount of unmet need, as certified by the Office of Student

4.	SCHOLARSHIP / AWARD: Beckman Scholars for Science Research:

amount will be at least $21,800 over three years. The award also funds
participation in the nationwide Beckman Scholars meeting during each
scholar's first and third summer. The program is limited to US Citizens
and permanent residents.

We seek freshmen who have strong interest in an extended research
experience and the chance to interact and network with some of the most
outstanding undergraduates in the US. Target criteria are: 770 or higher
quantitative SAT, high UF GPA with participation in advanced science
courses such as CHM2047, leadership skills and dedication to research,
and previous research experience is a plus. Students who have awards
from the Science for Life program may apply, but will need to choose one
program if accepted to both.

The 2007 Beckman Scholars program has an expanded list of mentors (see

environmental fields, such as policy, engineering, science, education,
urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice and economics. For
additional information please see their website at www.udall.gov  

UF students have been very successful over the years in winning this
award. It would be wonderful to have more applicants-up to the max of
six. Students are encouraged to see Jeanna Mastrodicasa or Sheila
