The UW Amgen Scholars Program will host 25 undergraduates each summer competitively selected from a national pool of applicants (including current UW undergraduates).
In addition to intensive research experiences, participants benefit from graduate student, post-doctoral and faculty mentors. UW Amgen Scholars attend weekly research seminars on current topics in biomedical research as well as research skills and ethics. Faculty research mentors represent a range of departments including Biology, Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Engineering, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Genome Sciences. Room and board is provided for participants to live on the beautiful UW campus during the summer program. Round trip travel from participants' home institutions and GRE test preparation are also funded by the program.
The UW summer program participants will join students from the nine other U.S. Amgen Scholars host universities at a three-day symposium in California during the program, and will visit various Seattle-based biotechnology facilities to learn more about career opportunities in relevant fields. The summer program concludes with poster and oral presentation sessions where participants share their summer research with faculty, peers, and the community.
