Amgen Scholars Program

Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Amgen Scholars Program is designed to recruit exceptional students interested in careers in biological and biomedical sciences with an intensive 10-week laboratory experience at one of the top research institutions in the nation. Scholars will engage in an independent research project under the mentorship of faculty at Washington University in St. Louis. Successful applicants are not required to have had prior research experience but are required to be currently enrolled in a U.S. undergraduate program. Applications from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the sciences (African Americans, Latin Americans, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders) are strongly encouraged to apply. We also encourage students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and those who attend small liberal arts colleges to apply.

The stipend for the 2015 program is very competitive and is quite ample to sustain you while in St. Louis. We will provide housing, travel and many meals throughout the summer. Program activities include seminars, individualized career counseling, workshops on applying to Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. programs, social activities and much more. The program will conclude with a symposium featuring a research poster presentation by each participant.

The information available from the website will guide you through the application process. We recommend that you complete all of the components of your application as early as possible to ensure all materials are received prior to the deadline. All offers of admission to the program will be made by March 1, 2015. Please feel free to contact Ms. Lorren Z. Buck at (314) 362-7456 or toll-free at 1-800-852-9074 if you have any questions after reviewing the application instructions.
