Amgen Scholars National Program - Summer 2014
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, 13 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.
Inspiring the Scientists of Tomorrow
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.
The Amgen Scholars U.S. Symposium
A signature component of the summer program is a mid-summer symposium where students hear firsthand from leading scientists working in industry and academia. The U.S. symposium is held in California and provides students with a valuable opportunity to network with other Amgen Scholars from across the U.S.
