Undergraduate summer research programme

Undergraduate summer research programme The Amgen Scholars Programme is an undergraduate summer research programme in science and biotechnology.

Every year, this initiative provides hundreds of selected undergraduates with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at some of Europe’s leading educational institutions.

Amgen scholars have the opportunity to:

  • take part in important university research projects, gain hands-on lab experience, and contribute to the advancement of science;
  • interact with and receive guidance from faculty mentors, including some of Europe’s top academic scientists; and
  • participate in engaging scientific seminars, workshops, and other networking events.


Currently, five universities in Europe host the summer research programme, but students from Europe also have the opportunity to apply to the Amgen Scholars Japan Programme.

While each host university has its own application process, the application deadline for all of the EU host universities is 1 February 2017. Lingua franca for all programmes is English.
