Description:
Discover your potential
An undergraduate summer research program in science and biotechnology

Every year, the Amgen Scholars U.S. Program provides hundreds of selected
undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research
experience at many of the nation’s premier educational institutions.
Currently, 10 institutions in the U.S. host the summer research program. The
Amgen Foundation has committed more than $50 million over twelve years to the
global Amgen Scholars Program to make this opportunity possible for thousands
of students.

Inspiring the Scientists of Tomorrow
As Amgen Scholars, students will have the opportunity to:
• Take part in important institution 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
• Participate in engaging 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 discuss their research and network with other
Amgen Scholars from across the nation.

Financial Support
Financial support is a critical component of the Amgen Scholars Program.
Please note that details vary by host institution. See each institution’s
summer research program website for more information.

Eligibility
Amgen Scholars U.S. Program applicants must be:
• U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents;
• Undergraduate students enrolled in accredited four-year colleges or
universities in the
United States, Puerto Rico or other U.S. territories; and
• Sophomores (with four quarters or three semesters of college experience),
juniors or
non-graduating seniors (who are returning in the fall to continue
undergraduate studies).
U.S. program applicants must also have:
• A cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or above; and
• An interest in pursuing a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D.
Each U.S. host institution has its own application process, but the
application deadline for all of the institutions is in early February, with
the exception of the California Institute of Technology, for which the
deadline is in mid-February.
