Description: 

Caltech's Amgen Scholars program introduces students to research under the guidance of seasoned research mentors. Students experience the process of research as a creative intellectual activity.

Amgen Scholarships will be offered in the following Fields: biochemistry bioengineering bioinformatics chemical and biomolecular engineering biopsychology biotechnology chemistry immunology medical pharmacology microbiology molecular genetics molecular medicine molecular pharmacology molecular, cell, and developmental biology neurobiology neuroscience pathology physiological psychology physiological science statistics toxicology

The Amgen Scholars program is modeled on the grant-seeking process:

Students collaborate with potential mentors to define and develop a project. Applicants write research proposals for their projects and a faculty committee reviews the proposals and recommends awards. Students carry out the work over a 10-week period in the summer, mid-June to late August. Amgen Scholars can attend weekly lunch meetings, dicussion panels, weekly faculty dinners, and field trips.

At the conclusion of the program, they submit a technical paper and give an oral presentation at SURF Seminar Day, a symposium modeled on a professional technical meeting.
