Harvard University Amgen Scholars will conduct biotechnology-focused research with world-leading scientific scholars over the course of a 10-week residential summer research program. While participating in the program, Amgen Scholars will live on Harvard University’s historic campus among the residents of the Harvard University Summer Undergraduate Research Village community.
In addition to working with world-renowned faculty in the laboratory, students have the opportunity to interact closely with faculty, graduate students, and other members of Harvard’s academic community through scholarly and pre-professional development activities, including faculty and graduate student research talks, and panels on careers in and beyond the academy. Amgen Scholars at Harvard University will cultivate skills for effective science communication and proposal writing and receive guidance on preparing for graduate school. Additionally, Harvard University Amgen Scholars will explore the Boston and Cambridge area through a variety of social activities and outings.
The Amgen Scholars Program at Harvard University will culminate with a symposium of final presentations attended by faculty, staff, and luminaries from across the university, celebrating the research of the Harvard University Amgen Scholars.
