Now approaching its eleventh summer, the Amgen Scholars Program continues to offer undergraduates the opportunity to collaborate with faculty at top institutions on cutting-edge scientific research at ten renowned U.S. host institutions.
Applications for the 2017 U.S. Amgen Scholars Program are now online. Note that applicants do not need to currently attend one of the host institutions to participate. In fact, Amgen Scholars have represented over 700 colleges and universities to date.

Eligibility requirements, as well as site-specific programming information, is available via amgenscholars.com. Additionally, I invite you to circulate the attached items:
