BEACoN Research Mentoring Program

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:

  • Tues, 10/27, 4:10-5 pm: BEACoN Research Mentor & Mentee Panel [] 
    • Have your questions answered and hear from past BEACoN Research Mentors and Mentees about their experience in the program!

    • Former BEACoN Research Scholars and Dr. Bennion will be available to answer questions about your application and can work with you one-on-one.
