We are excited to announce that student applications for the 2020-2021 BEACoN Research Mentoring Program will launch by Tuesday, 10/27 (the same day as our BEACoN Research panel)! The deadline will be Friday, November 13th by 5 pm.
BEACoN Research Mentoring is a program funded by the Office of University Diversity and Inclusion that enables underrepresented students to work with faculty for approximately 10 hrs/week on a research project and also receive mentoring in professional development. Selected students will receive a $1,500 stipend for their work during each of the Winter and Spring quarters ($3,000 total, distributed via financial aid).
We have two upcoming events designed for you to learn more:
