Now approaching its tenth summer, the Amgen Scholars Program continues to offer undergraduates the opportunity to collaborate with faculty at top institutions–including Harvard, Columbia, MIT, Stanford, and others in the US and Japan–on cutting-edge scientific research.

Applications for the 2016 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 ( Amgen Scholars have represented over 500 colleges and universities to date). Financial support is provided for scholars with details varying by institution.

Application deadline is February 1, 2016 (February 15 for the California Institute of Technology).
