Amgen Scholars: Announcements of Opportunity

Below are Announcements of Opportunity posted by Caltech faculty for the Amgen Scholars program. Additional AOs for the SURF program can be found here.

Students pursuing Amgen must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Students pursuing Amgen must complete the 10-week program from June 15 - August 21, 2015. Students must commit to these dates. No exceptions will be made.

Announcements of Opportunity are posted as they are received. Please check back regularly for new AO submissions! Remember: This is just one way that you can go about identifying a suitable project and/or mentor. For additional tips on identifying a mentor click here.
