The Amgen Scholars Program provides hundreds of selected undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at some 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 and to spark the interest and broaden the perspective of students considering scientific careers. Ultimately, the Program aims to increase the number of students pursuing advanced training and careers in the sciences.
Participants of the Amgen Scholars Program now have exclusive access to the online Amgen Scholars Community. This new site is designed to connect, inform, engage and inspire all Amgen Scholars — past, present and future on a global scale. Within the community, current Scholars and alumni will be able to login and access tools aimed at helping them build professional networks and read the latest science and career news.
Each host university in the U.S. will have approximately 25 Amgen Scholars each summer. With 10 host universities in the U.S., it is expected that there will be approximately 250 Amgen Scholars in the U.S. each summer.
