MIT Amgen-UROP Scholars ProgramLocation: Massachusetts
Due Date: February 1, 2017
Description: UROP is MIT’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program. The mission of the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program is to provide students with a strong science research experience that may be pivotal in their undergraduate career, cultivate a passion for science, encourage the pursuit of graduate studies in the sciences, and stimulate interest in research and scientific careers. During the summer 2015 program, MIT hosted 15 visiting scholars who engaged in research under the supervision of MIT’s foremost faculty and leading researchers. In addition to the visiting scholars, five MIT undergraduates participated in the program. Over the past nine summers, 232 students have conducted research through the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. We are now soliciting applications for students to engage in research as part of the summer 2016 Amgen-UROP Scholars Program. I request your assistance in distributing this announcement to your colleagues and encouraging young scholars on your campus to submit an application. While spending a summer in Boston and gaining research experience, your students will be paid a stipend; room, board and transportation to and from Boston will also be covered by their appointment. All students will live on-campus in one of our undergraduate residences. This community of young scholars will share in the excitement of research by participating in a faculty-led seminar series, workshops, poster session and a mid-summer symposium at UCLA (travel, room and board are covered).
