Amgen Scholars Program Research Program

Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Science and Biotechnology

The Amgen Scholars U.S. Program 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. Currently, 10 universities in the U.S. host the summer research program. The Amgen Foundation has committed
$34 million over eight years to this global initiative to make this opportunity possible to more than 2,400 students.
Eligibility requirements, as well as site-specific programming information, is available on the Amgen Scholars website as well as the attached Amgen Scholars US Program Flyer.

Application Deadline for Summer 2014 is February 3

Each host university has its own application process. You can apply to participate at as many host universities as you are interested in. The application at each host university requires, at a minimum, the submission of an official transcript, a letter of recommendation, and a personal statement or essay.

To apply to be an Amgen Scholar, students can go to the Host Universities Page of the Amgen Scholars website and click on the host university they are interested in. After reading about the Program at that particular host university, students can follow the link to that university’s summer research program website and find the Amgen Scholars application for that host university on their page.
