Amgen Scholars Summer Research Program
The Amgen Scholars Program provides hundreds of undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on summer research experience at some of the world’s leading institutions. A listing of current US institutions can be found here. Washington and Lee students are eligible to apply to programs in the US (US citizens only) and Japan (students of all nationalities).
Amgen Scholars will:
- Take part in important university 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 world’s leading academic scientists; and
- Attend scientific seminars, workshops and other networking events.
Please note that details of the financial support vary by host university. See each university‘s summer research program website for more information.
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 network with other Amgen Scholars from across the U.S.
