Made possible through a 12-year, $50 million commitment from the Amgen Foundation, Amgen Scholars allows hundreds of selected undergraduates from across the globe to participate in cutting-edge research opportunities at world-class institutions. Students engage in a hands-on research experience at many of the world's leading educational institutions. The Program seeks to increase learning and networking opportunities for students committed to pursuing science or engineering careers (STEM) and to spark the interest and broaden the perspective of students considering scientific careers. 17 leading institutions across the U.S., Europe and Japan currently host this summer program.
Undergraduate participants benefit from undertaking a research project under top faculty, being part of a cohort-based experience of seminars and networking events, and taking part in a symposium in their respective region (U.S., Europe or Japan) where they meet their peers, learn about biotechnology, and hear from leading scientists.
Each host institution has its own application process. You can apply to as many host institutions in the U.S. as you are interested in, but each host institution requires a separate application.
The application at each host institution in the U.S. requires, at a minimum, the submission of an official transcript, a letter of recommendation and a personal statement or essay.
