Every year, the Amgen Scholars U.S. Program provides hundreds of selected undergraduate students from across the U.S. with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at many of the nation’s premier educational institutions. Currently, thirteen institutions in the U.S. host the summer research program. The Amgen Foundation has committed $74 million over sixteen years to the global Amgen Scholars Program to make this opportunity possible for thousands of students. The UT Southwestern Amgen Scholars Program will provide an exceptional 10 week intensive hands-on research program which will include a trip to Los Angeles to attend the Amgen Scholars summer biotechnology symposium.
As Amgen Scholars, students will have the opportunity to:
• Take part in important institution 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 nation’s top academic scientists; and
• Participate in engaging scientific seminars, workshops and other networking events.
Airfare to and from Dallas will be covered by the program. Each fellowship award carries with it $4,000 in support for the 10-week period beginning June 3, 2019 through August 9, 2019.
