Amgen Scholars Program


The Amgen Scholars Program provides hundreds of selected undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at many 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. Amgen Scholars is hosted at thirteen premier educational institutions within the United States. Each host institution has its own application process, and you can apply to participate at as many host institutions as you are interested in.

In July, each Amgen Scholar in the U.S. attends a symposium to share their research projects and hear firsthand from leading scientists working in industry and academia. The symposium is held in California, and provides students with a valuable opportunity to network with other Amgen Scholars from across the nation.
