Research Internships for Undergraduates from Other Schools
The Stanford Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences/Amgen Scholars Program is an nine-week residential internship program. It offers undergraduates from across the country who want to prepare for and enter Ph.D. programs in biomedical sciences a unique opportunity for advanced research experience within a world-class university.
The Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF) participates in the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) Research Experience for Undergraduates each summer which provides approximately 60 undergraduate students with ten-week internships working on mentored research projects at NNIN facilities. SNF hosts approximately 7 students.
Application Deadlines: 2/13/13 online application; 2/20/13 online teacher recommendation; 2/21/13 final online application all forms complete.
Stanford is a partner in the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). This program, principally for underserved and underrepresented students, offers undergraduates the opportunity to work for eight to ten weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at participating Alliance institutions.
SURGE provides undergraduate scholars (from Stanford and other U.S. institutions) with a mentored research experience in a Stanford research group or laboratory. This fully funded, eight-week, summer residential program combines a rigorous research assignment with a comprehensive training and mentoring program. SURGE focuses on preparing students for graduate school, and therefore targets rising undergraduate juniors and seniors.
The Stanford School of Medicine's Summer HCOP is an academically rigorous six-week residential program that encourages and provides an academic learning environment for 25 talented college sophomores and juniors who expect to graduate after the summer of 2013, who seek a career in medicine and have experienced educational or academic barriers within the San Francisco Bay Area region.
