Greetings:

We want you to be aware of an exciting opportunity for students to engage in research at MIT as part of our summer 2018 Amgen Scholars Program. Undergraduates will participate in faculty-mentored summer research at MIT in the science and biotechnology areas. Students admitted to this program will conduct full-time research, attend seminars and workshops, present their research, network with other undergraduates with similar research interests, and attend a mid-summer symposium at UCLA.

Twenty undergraduates, 15 visiting students and 5 MIT students, will be admitted to the program. Participants will be paid $4,500 for the summer, receive on-campus housing, a food allowance, and visiting Scholars will be provided travel to/from Boston.

Attached is a flyer about the program.

What is the iSEED?
A university-wide institute, the iSEED promotes building a culturally and intellectually diverse and academically inclusive community of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff.

The iSEED is focused on excellence in education, engagement in research, mentoring and enhancement of professional development central to the UB mission.

iSEED Summer Research Experience
The iSEED Summer Research Experience is an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to gain research and lab experience. Students are matched with a participating faculty member whose interests are complementary to their own. Students work on a research project and gain hands-on experience during the 10-week program.

Summer stipends, housing and travel awards are available for talented undergraduate students with the opportunity to participate in research activities at UB. Students will be exposed to graduate and professional school opportunities offered at UB. iSEED summer scholars interested in undergraduate research experiences are welcome to apply online at www.buffalo.edu/iseed.
