Amgen Scholars Summer Research Program in Science and Biotechnology
Goes By: Amgen Scholars
Provides hundreds of selected undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at some of the nation’s leading educational institutions over the summer in fields such as biochemistry, immunology, neuroscience, and statistics.
As Amgen Scholars, students will have the opportunity to:
• Take part in important university research projects, gain hands-on lab experience and contribute to the advancement of science;
• Interact with and receive guidance from faculty mentors, including some of the nation’s top academic scientists; and
• Attend scientific seminars, workshops and other networking events.
Each U.S. host university has its own application process, but the application deadline for all of the universities is in early February, with the exception of the California Institute of Technology, for which the deadline is in mid-February.
Financial support varies by host university. See each university’s summer research program website for more information.
