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:
