Amgen Scholars Program

Now approaching its tenth summer, the Amgen Scholars Program continues to offer undergraduates the opportunity to collaborate with faculty at top institutions on cutting-edge scientific research.  In addition to ten renowned U.S.host institutions, U.S. students may also apply to be Amgen Scholars at leading institutions in Japan: Kyoto University, and The University of Tokyo.

Applications for the 2016 Amgen Scholars Program in the U.S. and Japan are now online.  Note that applicants do not need to currently attend one of the U.S. or Japan host institutions to participate. In fact, Amgen Scholars have represented over 500 colleges and universities to date.

We hope you will pass this information on to your undergraduates before the application close date of February 1, 2016 (February 15 for the California Institute of Technology). Eligibility requirements, as well as site-specific programming information, is available via amgenscholars.com.  Additionally, I invite you to circulate the attached items:

More information about the Amgen Foundation’s commitment to advancing STEM education in the U.S., Europe and Japan is here.

Thank you for sharing our information with your undergraduate community.  Any person requiring more information is welcome to contact me directly
