Description: 

Through the generous support of the Amgen Foundation, Columbia University and Barnard College now offer a summer research program to a select group of motivated undergraduate students who will benefit from the opportunity of hands-on biology related laboratory research. This is a chance to experience the joys of discovering something completely new while learning to overcome the challenges inherent in scientific research. The Amgen Scholars Program is competitive, with awards based on grades, recommendations and career plans.

During the 10 week program, students work full-time (about 40 hours/week) on independent research projects under the guidance of a research scientist. Once a week, students gather to hear a scientist describe his or her research, to hear about a peer's research, or to present their own research to the other Amgen Scholars. Amgen Scholars are required to write an original research article (due after the program ends) and present their findings orally to their peers. Additionally, all Amgen Scholars participate in the Amgen Scholars National Symposium in California.
   

Benefits: 

Participants receive a stipend of $5,000 in flex and housing on the Morningside campus of Columbia University.
