Now approaching its ninth summer, the Amgen Scholars Program continues to offer undergraduates the opportunity to collaborate with faculty at top institutions on cutting-edge scientific research. In addition to ten renowned U.S.host institutions, we are excited to announce that U.S. students may now apply to be Amgen Scholars at leading institutions in Japan: Kyoto University, and The University of Tokyo.
Applications for the 2015 Amgen Scholars Program in the U.S. and Japan are now online. Note that applicants do not need to currently attend one of the U.S. or Japan host institutions to participate. In fact, Amgen Scholars have represented over 500 colleges and universities to date.
We hope you will pass this information on to your undergraduates before the application close date of February 2, 2015 (February 14 for the California Institute of Technology). Eligibility requirements, as well as site-specific programming information, is available via amgenscholars.com.
