The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a participant in a summer research program in science and biotechnology Ė the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. UROP is MITís Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program. The mission of the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program is to provide students with a strong science research experience that may be pivotal in their undergraduate career, cultivate a passion for science, encourage the pursuit of graduate studies in the sciences, and stimulate interest in research and scientific careers. Over the past seven summers, almost 200 students have conducted research through this program.
We are soliciting applications for visiting students to engage in research as part of the summer 2014 Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. Students will be paid a stipend; room, board and transportation to and from Boston will also be covered by their appointment. All students will live on-campus in one of our undergraduate residences. This community of young scholars will share in the excitement of research by participating in a faculty-led seminar series, workshops, a poster session and a mid-summer symposium at UCLA (travel, room and board are covered).
