"Although the Amgen Scholars Program was advertised as a program for undergraduates, I never thought it would be possible for first-year students to get in. So, in my first year, I didn't really consider applying and just attended an event about the Program, which took place at LMU two weeks before the deadline to see how I could apply next year. I asked the program coordinators a couple of questions, and they convinced me to apply as a first-year student. To my big surprise, I was accepted!"

Amgen Scholars is an international program funded by the Amgen Foundation with direction and technical assistance provided by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge.
