Amgen Scholars Program at Harvard University

Posted by Tim on December 12, 2016 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

Harvard University is one of ten U.S. institutions that again will be offering a ten-week Amgen Scholars Program in the summer of 2017.  The Harvard-Amgen program, with an emphasis on biotechnology research, affords a diverse cohort of rising undergraduate juniors and seniors the opportunity to work in the laboratories of faculty across the Harvard universe, including the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the Division of Medical Sciences at Harvard Medical School. In addition to an engaging, formative research experience, Harvard-Amgen Scholars will live among the 400 undergraduates residents of the Harvard Summer Undergraduate Research Village community in one of the historic Houses along the Charles River.
I would appreciate it if you would forward this message on my behalf to your undergraduate scientists who may be interested in applying, and to faculty who may know talented, promising biotechnology scholars who may value the opportunity spending an amazing summer in Cambridge conducting research in the Harvard-Amgen program. The deadline to submit complete applications is Monday, February 1, 2017.  More information about the Harvard-Amgen Scholars Program, including profiles of last years cohort, along with eligibility criteria and instructions to apply may be found here:  http://uraf.harvard.edu/amgen-scholars .  The Amgen Scholars Program website, which includes information about all of the U.S. and international programs available this coming summer may be found here:  www.amgenscholars.com .  Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at gllacer@fas.harvard.edu .  With all best wishes for a terrific holiday season,
