Amgen Scholars Programme

group of students

The Amgen Cambridge Scholars Programme offers 15 undergraduate students from across Europe the opportunity to take part in an eight week research project within one of the laboratories at the University of Cambridge.  

The 2023 programme will run between 10th July and 1st September. Accommodation is provided at a Cambridge college throughout the programme.

Scholars are also invited to take part in weekly evening sessions as part of our professional development programme. In recent years this has included sessions exploring different scientific careers, applying for graduate education and on how to prepare and present scientific posters. 

We also offer a variety of social activities throughout the programme.

Annual Symposium

The Annual Symposium will take place immediately following the summer programme, in September. Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge will be joined by Amgen Scholars from the other four European Programme sites (the Institut Pasteur in France, ETH Zurich in Switzerland, Karolinska Institute in Sweden and LMU-Munich, Germany). The symposium will take place in Clare College, and all meals and accommodation will be provided during this period. Attendance at the Annual Symposium is obligatory for those accepting a place on the Amgen Scholars Programme.

Amgen Scholars Programme

The University of Cambridge is delighted to continue to participate in the Amgen Scholars Programme and to welcome scholars from universities across Europe.

Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge will have the opportunity to work alongside our experienced faculty members, including some of the world's top academic scientists. They will gain hands-on laboratory experience, and actively contribute to the advancement of science. We hope that the experience of undertaking research in one of the world's foremost Universities will enthuse our Scholars about a career in scientific research.

We would like to acknowledge the support of the Amgen Foundation.
