In 1980, Dr. and Mrs. Arnold O. Beckman initiated the Beckman Research Endowment with a major gift to the Campus Research Board and a challenge to the University of Illinois to develop matching private support. In the course of the regular review process, the Board selects projects of special distinction or promise for designation as Arnold O. Beckman Awards.
